On August 25, 2020, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) introduced and published a new circular (CSSF 20/750). This circular is applicable to all credit institutions, all Professionals of the Financial Sector (PFS), all payment institutions, and all electronic money institutions. The main objective is to implement the guidelines of the European Banking Authority EBA/GL/2019/04 relating to the management of risks linked to information and communication technologies (“ICT”) and security.
2020 has been challenging for lots of companies trying to keep afloat despite all the sanitary restrictions. Being present and maintaining customers relationships was not an easy game yet we did it. Through webinars, virtual events, magazine interviews, and so much more at Excellium we made sure to be present and to maintain our yearly activities no matter how much we had to adapt.
Le groupe Excellium Services emploie actuellement plus de 130 personnes sur les différents marchés où elle opère. Et malgrè un recrutement soutenu cette année 2020, la recherche de talents reste une des priorités pour 2021. Si 2020 aura été une année particulière à bien des égards, les soucis de trouver des talents dans des domaines technologiques comme la cybersécurité restent d’actualité.
Excellium Services, Luxembourg’s leading provider of cybersecurity services, and BitSight, Europe’s leader in security ratings, are joining forces to effectively protect economic players in Luxembourg and strengthen their digital resilience.
Antivirus vs EDR
