Currently, Information Security is a visible and growing concern in organizations. Business competitiveness is highly dependent on access and generation of more and better information. The perimeter of organizations with the outside is more permissive. Business processes are executed in a context of continuous exchange of information with external elements in the relationship with customers and suppliers. The social habits of employees within organizations have changed access to the organization's networks using their own devices, not always properly protected by their personal data, allowing the creation of backdoors for corporate data, even in seemingly harmless behaviors and attitudes.
Ensuring cyber security and compliance requires ongoing evaluation, implementation, and maintenance. Organizations that do not implement essential safety practices are significantly reducing their legal defense in case of violation. The new European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which establishes rules on the privacy rights of citizens, becomes applicable from May 25, 2018.
