June 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Research findings on Information Security are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Luxembourg, Luxembourg, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Information security is a central concern inside organisations, but it remains quite difficult for most small entities to implement and maintain information security. In this context, the Public Research Centre Henri Tudor and the Luxembourg's Ministry of Economy and Foreign Trade decided to enhance information security awareness and management in Luxembourg's small and medium enterprises."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Public Research Center, "Therefore, our research work aims to propose a method adapted to small and medium enterprises to conduct a first assessment of the enterprises information security maturity and improve their process accordingly. This paper describes the framework developed and presents its validation in industry. The results of applying the method in industry are positive and show a lack in organisational maturity for the information security."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The future challenge of this assessment method is to be integrated into an information security web platform and use the large amount of statistics to continuously improve and contextualise the proposed tool."
