The effects of auditing on information security

Information security is recognised as a key control area for NRENs and universities. Though legislation has been in place for several decades universities only just now start to implement measures to get in control for information security. The upcoming new European privacy legislation seems to be an important driver to accelerate this process. In several countries NRENs play a key role in boosting and supporting the implementation of information security management within their subsidiaries. The approach can be different per country. In this session we will discuss the approach in Norway and in the Netherlands. They differ widely, but both are successful in reaching the goal of improving information security at the NREN and her subsidiaries.
