Information Security Benchmark Workshop Summary

Posted by: Fred Werner

This week, some members of the ETIS Information Security Working Group participated in a Workshop hosted by TNO in Amsterdam. The purpose of this Workshop was to discuss the results of the ETIS Information Security Benchmark, some successful practices that were identified and the newly established security performance levels of our members.

The study provides an in-depth look at the security of the enterprise environment and has been developed with the help of TNO. It shows where our members perform well, and can be used to identify where improvements could result in substantial value in terms of savings in resources expended, increased performance, and the benefits gained from the introduction of the Information Security best practices. Now in its fifth year, the benchmark has incorporated a total of 16 European telecom providers, many of which are now repeat participants. This continuity lends even more value to the benchmark results as it allows one to track the evolution of the security landscape and adoption of best practices.

The next Information Security meeting will be hosted in Riga, Latvia on 17/18 October in conjunction with the ETIS Community Gathering. For more information on how to join the ETIS Information Security Working Group, please contact Fred Werner at
