data protection

Cybersecurity challenges are becoming greater every year, and 2019 will be no exception to the rule. A united approach, together with the exchange of information and experiences, remains essential if we are to protect ourselves in an environment of increasingly complex and dynamic cyber threats.

This point was made by the Cyber Security Coalition in its 2018 Activity Report. Combining skills and expertise from different sectors, at national level, is the most important asset for combating the increased risk of cyber attacks.

The Brussels Regional Informatics Centre (BRIC) shares this opinion and is actively working on the issue of cyber security, particularly through its partnership with Brussels Prevention & Security, the introduction of IT security infrastructures, the provision of protective services in the Brussels Region and, lastly, its data protection advisory role for Brussels institutions as part of the DPO/ISA AAS work carried out by the BRIC ISM team.

Latest achievement

This week, the BRIC presented the ARTEMIS tool to the Cyber Security Coalition, in collaboration with Etnic and eWBS (the administrative simplification and digital administration service of Wallonia and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation) and the Crossroads Bank for Data Exchange (BCED).
This new tool makes it possible to analyse organisational risks and where necessary analyse the impact on data protection (DPIA*), where GDPR requires it.
The advantage of Artemis is that it quickly creates a map of the risks, whether at organisational level or for the person involved, proposes a treatment plan and encourages a continuous improvement process in terms of information security.

* Data Protection Impact Assessments are reports that organisations are required to produce during the automatic processing of personal data, under the European GDPR. DPIAs contain an inventory of the risks of data violation linked to the processing of personal data and allow organisations to take measures to reduce these risks.
