Posted on Posted in CyberSafe News

Business Breakfast 4 May 2016

May 4, 2016 – CyberSafe and Hewlett Packard Enterprise organized a Business Breakfast on Data Security named “How to Manage Data Privacy and be Compliant with Regulation”. The event was hosted in Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s main office in Quinta da Fonte, Portugal.

With ever-increasing competitive and cost pressures, enterprises are driving toward greater use of cloud services and Big Data analytics to extract more value from corporate and customer information. At the same time, concerns for effective enterprise data security and privacy and compliance with privacy or UE regulations can often cause delays in adoption of these valuable technologies.

In this breakfast, we showed how HPE SecureData and SecureMail Enterprise solutions provide a comprehensive approach to enterprise data protection and solve the issue of advanced threats attacking data as it is stored, processed and moved across different systems end-to-end, without the need to expose live data in the gaps between or across systems.

With participants from medium to big companies of several vertical sectors, as banking, insurance, retail, government, health and gambling we had very interesting interactive discussions on data security.

CyberSafe participated in 2016 TSI.2.Market

Posted on Posted in CyberSafe News


April 13, 2016 – CyberSafe participated in the 2016 edition of the TSI.2.Market event hosted by Universidade do Minho.

The TSI.2.Market is an annual event that aims to promote student integration in the work market, offering a space for experience sharing and reflecting on themes and profiles within Information Systems (IS), as well as the promotion of partnership opportunities in several companies in the field of Information Systems and Technologies (IST).

The event took place in the Engineering School, Azurém Campus at Minho’s University, on the 11th, 12th and 13th of April 2016, involving all cycles of studies from the TSI@UMinho universe.


Nelson’s presentation was quite relevant and interesting not only in terms of information but also in terms of the presentation itself. It was a simple presentation, he didn’t use a lot of over complicated “technical” terms, and it wasn’t too exhaustive or too detailed as sometimes happens in presentations where the audience quickly loses interest. It was really useful personally, as it made me realize that Security is the area where I should build my professional carrier. In the end of the presentation I talked with Nelson, and we’ve exchanged some ideas and impressions for 30 minutes, he was very attentive and very available to help with anything.

(Emanuel Palmeira –MEGSI student at U.Minho)


The presence of CyberSafe at TSI2Market was a great advantage to me, because it showed me that following a professional career in the security area can be a promising opportunity. As a student, and considering that this is an area of interest to me, it was really motivating listen to Nelson Silva’s testimony about how is working in the informatic security area. TSI2Market is a huge opportunity that students have to make contacts with professionals of the labor market, so, I believe that it was really important for us, as students, to learn more about an area where you can invest for your future.

(Márcio Miranda –TSI student at U. Minho)


In my opinion the CyberSafe presentation, made by Nelson Silva, was one of TSI2Market most important moments. First of all because in this stage of our lives as students, we are still a little confused about the area where we should focus our career and second because Nelson’s testimony clarified many doubts that appear in this phase regarding the work market. It was very good to have contact with a professional in the Security area as this is a very interesting area for me personally and that I believe will bring a good and promising future in the field of information technology.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Finds Security Operations Centers Lack Maturity and Skilled Professionals in 2016 State of Security Operations Report

Posted on Posted in Vendor News


January 19, 2016 – CyberSafe vendor partner Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) published today its third annual State of Security Operations Report 2016, highlighting the critical role security operations centers (SOCs) play in protecting today’s digital enterprise. As organizations face an increasingly volatile threat landscape, the report assesses SOC maturity levels to help organizations improve their security posture and understand the components of a successful security operations organization.

Published by HPE Security Intelligence and Operations Consulting (SIOC), the report examines 114 SOCs in more than 150 assessments around the globe and measures four areas of performance: people, processes, technology and business function. This year’s report indicates that security operations maturity remains well below optimal levels, with 85 percent of assessed organizations falling below recommended maturity levels. While this number is alarmingly high, it accounts for the influx of new SOCs that enterprises are building to address evolving security challenges. These findings also demonstrate the need for organizations to strike the right performance balance across all areas of the SOC, from the foundation up.
