Cyber Threat CEE Region 2018

CYBERSEC HUB platform and Instytut Kosciuszko (Poland) have published a report, titled Cyber Threat CEE Region 2018. The report analyses the cyber security preparedness of SMEs from CEE region (Czechia, Poland, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia).

According to the main findings, 65% of companies in the region do not have any cyber security strategy in place, only half of them make regular data back-ups, and almost 60% still rely primarily on classic anti-malware software.

Protecting Europe against software vulnerabilities: It’s time to act! 

Brussels-based Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) has published a major report on software vulnerability disclosure (SVD) in Europe, titled Protecting Europe against software vulnerabilities: It’s time to act!. In the report, CEPS Task Force provides recommendations and concrete policy measures to help jumpstart coordinated vulnerability disclosure and government disclosure decision processes across Europe.

According to the report, a significant barrier to the implementation of CVD policies across the EU is the lack of a single interpretation of what constitutes ‘hacking’ among the member states. It is argued that the first step is to provide the necessary legal certainty to security researchers involved in vulnerability discovery as well as to set up appropriate vulnerability disclosure processes through complementary guidance and best practices.

First commentary of the report can be found HERE
