If you are interested in how information security, GDPR and ISO 27001 are shaping the business landscape, a series of upcoming events may interest you. BH Consulting will be delivering presentations as part of Certification Europe’s ISO 27001 Nationwide Roadshow.
This series of four breakfast seminars takes place during October and November at venues in Dublin, Cork, Athlone and Belfast. An expert panel will discuss what information security management entails for organisations.
Each seminar will consist of a networking session with breakfast, three presentations, a Q&A section and the opportunity to have a one-to-one session with members of the panel. Brian Honan, CEO of BH Consulting, and Certification Europe’s chief executive Michael Brophy will give presentations at all four events. Each seminar will also have a guest speaker. Jason Farina, team lead for IT security and forensics at the Revenue Commissioners, completes the lineup for the Dublin event on Wednesday 4 October. Sean Griffin, CTO with Poppulo (formerly Newsweaver), will present at the Clayton Hotel in Cork on Wednesday 18 October. Intuity’s HR director Thomas Cox will join the panel for the Athlone seminar on Thursday 9 November. Andrew Maybin, managing director of Tibus, will present at the Belfast event on Thursday 16 November.
The subtitle for the series of events is ‘infosec vs GDPR’. Topics for discussion include tips on starting your journey to ISO 27001 and successfully implementing an information security management system. The panel will cover common misconceptions around ISO 27001, the value of certification, and continually improving a certified system. The discussion will also review new legislative requirements including GDPR. In addition, there will be live examples of how to demonstrate compliance to GDPR, including ISO 27001.
Our involvement with the roadshow comes while we have noticed an increase in the number of businesses looking for information and certification around getting assessed against, and becoming certified to, ISO 27001. This internationally recognised standard for information security uses a risk-based approach for securing valuable information. We believe businesses are doing this because it enables them to give customers independent assurance that they follow best practice and they can show they take security seriously.
