The Importance of Implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS)

In today’s interconnected and data-driven business landscape, information has become one of the most valuable assets for companies. As organizations rely heavily on technology and digital platforms, protecting sensitive data from threats has become a critical concern. This is where an Information Security Management System (ISMS) plays a pivotal role. In this article, we will explore why it is essential for companies to have an ISMS and how it can help safeguard their information assets. Definitions An ISMS, or Information Security Management System, is a systematic approach to managing an organization’s information security processes, policies, and controls. It is a framework that provides a structured and holistic approach to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information assets within an organization. The primary objective of an ISMS is to establish a set of coordinated security practices that align with the organization’s overall business goals and risk management strategies. It involves defining and implementing policies, procedures, guidelines, and controls to manage the security of information assets effectively. Key components of an ISMS typically include: Risk Assessment: Identifying and assessing potential risks and vulnerabilities to the organization’s information assets, including data breaches, unauthorized access, and system failures. Security Policies: Developing comprehensive…

ISO27001 and GDPR

We are talking about Article 32 of GDPR: It basically says that you should have some measures in place in order to protect customer data by reducing the risk of a customer data to be lost or stolen(through a data breach, through classical theft, losing drives, making information public unintentionally an so on).   Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller and the processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate: the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data; the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services; the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident; a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing. In assessing the appropriate level of security account shall be…

Next C++ generation: C++11

Introducing C++11: Next iteration of programming language passes review ( — This past week in Madrid, Spain, the next iteration of the C++ programming language, C++11, passed review by the technical standards committee. “The new standard provides language features that make it easier to write correct and well-performing code in C++ together with more standard libraries. For example, C++11 provides facilities for writing concurrent code (e.g. for multicore machines) in a type safe-manner. The improved language facilities are focused on allowing better specification and use of abstractions (classes and templates). Examples are a more efficient way of getting results out of functions (move semantic), better facilities for object initialization, and a simpler for loop. Examples of new library components are hash tables, threads, and regular expression matching.”

Camera Review : Casio Exilim EX-Z1050

Almost like everyone here, I got it for my wife with the hopes that it is easy to use, makes decent photos in AUTO mode, has low noise levels and long life battery. Partially, it fulfills my expectations. I didn’t have time to play with it a lot because I really don’t like this kind of toys. I went back to my Olympus E-500 SLR immediately. Here is a mini-review based on what I’ve seen so far: – A lot of features, but some of them are perfectly useless for an amateur because he/she will not understand them – Huge amount of predefined modes called “best shot”. However, there are too many for someone who wants to point and shoot (they will not be able to find the right scene, so they’ll use Auto) – Nice video mode, but a lot of noise in it. Sound is decent for such a small camera. – The so called super feature „Anti Shake DSP” is perfectly useless. I tried to take a shot of my cat while it was just walking near me, and the image was blur (because of the movement) Noise: If you don’t use the flash the pictures are…
