We increasingly depend on information technology to manage our key business processes at work, as well as in our private lives. Any new service invariably becomes connected through IT systems, networks, software and the internet. This in turn makes them more vulnerable to hostile or accidental security breaches. At Bureau Veritas, we independently confirm that you (and your suppliers) meet cybersecurity regulations and standardized criteria to mitigate that risk.
We cannot live without information & communication technology (ICT) anymore. But the constant threat of hackers taking advantage of vulnerable services emphasizes how crucial security, protection and privacy are to us all, and to our business activities.
Due to its critical societal aspects, cybersecurity has also become a compliance topic. In Europe, for instance, privacy is regulated through the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Operators of Essential Services (OESs) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs) must comply with the EU Network and Information Security (NIS) directive.
How can you be sure that your organization and systems are secure and compliant? To answer this question, there are many standards, best practices and guidelines such as ISO 27001, ISO 27017 for Cloud Security, ISO 27701 for Privacy Management and many more.
