Digitization and IT security in the public sector
For successful digitization, public institutions, administrations, municipalities and educational institutions must constantly stay on the ball and also meet ever new requirements in terms of IT security. These demands on IT infrastructures in terms of availability, sustainability and efficiency are also increasing rapidly.
It is therefore not surprising that the coalition agreement of the new government also has a digital focus and includes concrete intentions regarding the security of data and IT infrastructures. (Read more in our article)
The public sector as critical infrastructure (KRITIS)
Server rooms, IT safes and data centers represent a central collection point for administrative services and sensitive as well as confidential information in public institutions. In the event of failure or impairment of this infrastructure, lasting supply bottlenecks, significant disruptions to public safety or other dramatic consequences occur. For this reason, these IT infrastructures require special protection and fail-safe design and are even subject to special technological and regulatory frameworks of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), the so-called "critical infrastructures" (KRITIS).
Requirements with regard to IT security measures
The basic IT protection developed by the BSI offers authorities a systematic procedure for identifying and implementing security measures. But this simultaneously puts pressure on those responsible at ministries, government agencies, associations, cities, municipalities, public utilities, administrations, and educational institutions such as schools and universities. After all, their institutions must be kept on track. An effective and custom-fit IT security concept must be well thought out.

The best for the end: Many of these measures are eligible for funding
When consulting and implementing measures in the area of IT security, it is possible to apply for government funding. But the offers are diverse, and not infrequently the programs and services are incomprehensible. There is often a lack of time and knowledge to apply for the subsidies.
