mnemonic partakes in National Security Month

Offers free security workshops during National Security Month.

October is National Security Month in Norway, and mnemonic contributes to the NorSIS initiative to increase focus on IT and information security in Norwegian organisations through free security lectures and workshops in October.

This year, we are inviting ourselves to Norwegian companies and organisations all over the country with two presentations on the new Security Act and information security in procurement processes. Additionally we contribute with a workshop on security strategy.

You can find more information on how to get a visit from mnemonic in October below.

PRESENTATION: NEW SECURITY ACT, ICT SECURITY LAW AND THE NIS DIRECTIVE – WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU?

How should we best secure fundamental national functions and critical society services in Norway?

The Norwegian authorities are trying to answer this question by introducing the new Security Act and a new ICT Security Act. The Security Act was introduced in the beginning of 2019, but despite its increased scope, the consequences have so far been minimal. In anticipation of the Security Act, the Ministry of Justice has had a new ICT security law on consultation after the EU adopted a new security directive, the NIS Directive.

In this presentation, Mattias will provide the status of the Security Act is, what the new ICT Security Act is and can entail.

Target group: management

Who is visiting: Mattias Røstad Jørum, Team leader for mnemonic's Governace, Risk and Compliance department (GRC)

Duration: 30 minutes

 

PRESENTATION: INFORMATION SECURITY IN PROCUREMENT PROCESSES

Buying services or products to integrate with existing infrastructure has always been challenging. So how do you handle the increasing security aspect and the complexity involved?

This lecture provides an experience-based insight into the most common assumptions required to ensure a good outcome, and some of the risks that follow when one does not.

Target group: management

Who is visiting: Torbjørn Øverland Amundsen, Senior Consultant in mnemonic’s Governace, Risk and Compliance department (GRC)

Duration: one hour

 

WORKSHOP: SECURITY STATEGY

What your organisation wants to achieve, and the approaches you take to achieve these goals, are unique for the organisation, industry, and threat landscape you are in.

Your organisation's IT security is one of many factors that will help you achieve or, at worst, fail to achieve the goals you set.

Would you like a visit from a security expert from mnemonic to help you see your organisation’s unique goals from a security perspective?

During the workshop you will among other things, be able to discuss your organisation's needs in these areas:

  • How to define and reach your organisation's overall goals through the right strategy
  • How the organisation's IT strategy directly affects the organisation's overall goals
  • Your organisation's digital challenges
  • The threat landscape in your industry

Target group: management

Who is visiting: Angel Alonso, Team leader for mnemonic's Governance, Risk and Compliance department (GRC)

Duration: one hour
