European agency lays out national risk management advice

Working with critical information infrastructure stakeholders is key to disaster management

Europe’s leading security agency has said that member states’ governments need to work more closely with critical information infrastructure stakeholders in preparation for catastrophes such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks.

ENISA (the European Network and Information Security Agency) released a new report on Thursday, which sets out the essential elements for national risk management (NRM) in relation to essential information infrastructure and calls for closer ties between governments and information infrastructure stakeholders.

The report also says that along with obvious objectives such as setting the vision, establishing the NRM organization, promoting standards and creating awareness, management must also analyze errors and incidents.

The report includes a questionnaire that allows governments to assess their strengths and weaknesses in relation to NRM preparedness using a five-level capability maturity measurement.

STYLISTIC Q702

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
