The Budel education company Prowise, market leader in touchscreens in the Netherlands, has joined forces with the Cyber Resilience Centre Brainport (CRB). For Prowise, which within the education sector leads the way in the field of privacy and security, the match with the CRB and arming oneself against cybercrime is a logical one.
Brainport is the first in the Netherlands to have a Cyber Resilience Centre. Since September 2019, the foundation has been helping companies within the knowledge-intensive industry with resilience against digital espionage and cyber attacks. Via a well secured, private platform, connected participants can exchange confidential information. Both about threats and about solutions. In addition, various knowledge sessions, webinars and workshops are organised.
Director Paul van Nunen: "We see that more and more companies are finding their way to CRB. And that is very good news, because CRB is not just about certification and training, but about the cooperation between many companies in the high-tech sector. Companies warn each other and learn from each other's experiences. I'm delighted that Prowise is joining this group and look forward to the collaboration."
Safest solution for education
As an education company, Prowise leads the world in privacy and security. All products - from touchscreens to software - are developed entirely in-house. This ensures that all products and services of the Budel-based company comply with high privacy and security regulations. Prowise is for instance ISO 27001 and Privacy Verified certified. In addition the independent German AV-Test Institute confirmed the security of the top model Prowise Touchscreen Ten (including software) with a 'Tested IoT Product' certification. Thanks to the pending certification from the German Federal Office for Security in Information Technology (abbreviated to BSI, a seal of approval from the German government), Prowise can now back up its proposition for the "safest solution for education".
"By joining forces with the Cyber Resilience Centre Brainport, we can make an even stronger fist against cyber crime. Of course, we will not hesitate to actively share our knowledge about privacy and security with the affiliated companies in the region," says Development Director Luuk Loeff.
National Cyber Security Centre
Just under 25 companies from the high-tech industry are at the basis of the Cyber Resilience Centre Brainport. The centre was given further shape with the help of TNO, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Change, the Ministry of Justice and Security, Brainport Industries, Brainport Development, the Eindhoven Metropolitan Region, the Province of Noord-Brabant and BDO Advisory. ASML, Siemens and VDL, among others, are participating in the CRB, which maintains close contact with the Digital Trust Center and the National Cyber Security Center.
