ERA releases updated cybersecurity guide

By Belinda Smart14 February 2023

The European Rental Association (ERA) has released an updated ‘ERA guide to cybersecurity leading practice in the equipment rental industry. The new edition provides the latest cybersecurity insights for the rental sector and a ‘Roadmap’ for good security.

The purpose of the guide, first published in 2021, is to define the enterprise-wide scope of cybersecurity intervention, identify the core elements of a successful strategy, including the special factors that may impact rental companies, and to outline leading practices being adopted today by leaders in our industry.

Michel Petitjean, ERA Secretary General, said:

“One of the greatest threats impacting the equipment rental industry is the vulnerability to cybersecurity impacts on our businesses. Since we first released our cybersecurity guide in 2021, this threat has only increased due to global events and the intensification of digitalisation across the industry globally.

“With this updated guide, we continue to identify and communicate leading practice in cybersecurity that can support our industry, where an equipment rental company can evaluate where it stands in relation to cybersecurity and identify leading practice it can aspire to.”

The ‘ERA guide to cybersecurity ‎leading practice in the equipment rental industry’ was produced by an expert consultant, DKR Projects Ltd, in collaboration with the ERA Cybersecurity Working Group, which is comprised of acknowledged leader companies in the equipment rental sector.

This guide is available to read and download on a dedicated website:
