A chat with Brook Zimmatore on Cyber security efforts in the EU

12/05/2014 by


In spite of the economic woes that plagues the Eurozone, much of the attention has been placed on the exercise the Cyber Europe 2014.

The European Union Agency for Network and Information security organised a simulated test, which assesses the ability and coordination by European nations to respond collectively against cyber-attacks and threats towards data collection infrastructure.

The goal of this entire comprehensive process by ENISA is to help facilitate the following: the planning, conducting and evaluating pan by the European cyber cooperation exercises. On this third attempt-the previous that were organized back in 2010 and 2012-more than 200 different organisations and 400 cyber-security professionals collaborated and mitigated to resolve the highly technical nature of these targeted attacks.

The big data revolution has taken place with many technological breakthroughs transforming how agencies communicate and adapt to these trends. Many surveillance agencies or institutions in charge of national security in the European Union (EU) have their work cut out for them and working unilaterally is another challenge to this initiative.

“Within the EU, law enforcement plays a big part in mitigating cybercrime. In fact most of the banks signed up for our Massive’s Strixus cyber intelligence platform tell us that European authorities including external FBI offices have provided valuable intelligence and even tip-offs of data dumps, impending breaches or cyber-attacks which have come through their intelligence channels,” said Brook Zimmatore CEO at Massive and Founder of the cyber intelligence service Strixus.

With a vast number of companies moving some, if not all, of their operations to the cloud, security continues to be of major concern. Whilst there are numerous patches and firewalls to safeguard defences, it has been highlighted that the most difficult area to protect against is human interaction.
