WHAT MAKES IT SECURITY SO IMPORTANT?
All over the world, German companies are known for their innovative technologies and high levels of quality. Your data are at the heart of your business and are absolutely essential. The systems used by companies are, however, often outdated and feature security vulnerabilities that make it easy for attackers to gain access.
A study conducted by the digital industry association Bitkom in 2015 revealed that in the two years prior to the study, every second German company had fallen prey to digital corporate espionage, sabotage or data theft. More specifically their corporate IT systems and communication infrastructure were the points of attack.
The financial losses suffered by companies every year as a result of digital espionage attacks are extremely high. The damages to their reputations far exceed that. Alongside the business world, scientific and political institutions are also increasingly being targeted by cyber- attacks. The assault on the German Parliament’s internal data network launched by hackers in May 2015 is probably the most infamous recent case.
WHAT KIND OF PROTECTION DOES AN IT SECURITY SOLUTION OFFER?
A reliable IT security plan safeguards against attacks from both the inside and the outside. Entrepreneurs themselves or their employees can be the cause of attacks from within, for example by losing a smartphone or a laptop. Should these devices contain unencrypted or only insufficiently encrypted customer data or internal company information, finders can easily gain access.
External attacks can take place through digital communication channels. These attacks are designed to steal, manipulate or destroy customer data or company information on products and technologies.
