Government failings causing problems for online security of businesses

The online security of SMEs across the European Union (EU) may be put at risk due to the failings of their governments, a new report has suggested.

According to pcadvisor.co.uk, the revelation appeared in a European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) document published in December, which pointed out that different member states have differing levels of “maturity”, in terms of security, which weakens the whole system.

One issue relates to the way information is being shared between countries. The authors said: “When exchanging information on incidents with their peers in other member states, it is still common that partnering teams do not act upon information provided in a timely and professional way.”

The ENISA report noted that Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT) are organised differently across the region, with some countries having online security centres while other member states such as Italy have no official CERT in operation.
