The project recognises that the cross-border nature of Information Security activities is important, as many of the practices relating to privacy, data security, consumer rights and business responsibilities can differ from one EU country to another.
Consequently, the INSEMOT project takes the form of a multi-lingual information and training portal, which has been structured to enable users to search for and acquire expertise and knowledge on Information Security and Data Protection issues throughout the EU, with a focus on the 6 partner countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain) and the defined target groups of SMEs and MEs.
Aims & Objectives
The principal aim of the INSEMOT project is to help the owner(s) and staff of SMEs/MEs to understand their obligations with regard to Information Security and to comply with the relevant legislation that applies to capturing, storing and processing data in their country.
The project seeks to achieve this objective by providingthese businesses with a multinational informations portal and a modular training programme on Information Security.
Information Security matters to you and your business!
Most business owners only realise the importance of securing their data AFTER they have been harmed by a security incident. By taking action now, you can minimize the risk of loss or damage to you and your business!
Result The main problem being tackled by the INSEMOT SME project is the lack of information and availability of training in the field of data protection and Information Security (IS). This can be a major issue for Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and, in particular, Micro-Enterprises (MEs) which employ less than 10 employees, as it is typically left to the owners of these smaller businesses to take important decisions regarding the IS systems fortheir enterprises. The European Commission has prioritized the provision of information and training resources on IS to this target group.
Area of application Everybody who cares for Information Security!
