Be smart to act smartly

According to a statement of the federal agency of security and IT (BSI), the amount of cyber attacks rose noticeably in 2016. The SECUrisk can agree to that fact on the basis of a higher demand for IT security. Being part of the DATA CENTER GROUP, SECUrisk is a specialist for information security. Markus Schäfer, its division manager, stresses the importance of proper protection for data, applications and processes. 

According to the expert, only few persons in charge are aware of the consequences which an increasing automation brings regarding existential dependence and availability of IT infrastructures. And not only the medium-size companies are at risk. Other, bigger, companies like the public authorities and international concerns do not pay enough attention to the right protection of their IT infrastructure either, although it got mandatory because of the digitization and Big Data. Hence, the solution are holistic concepts. This way, the responsible people for IT do not only learn to deal with the digitization correctly, but also learn about appropriate precautionary measures for processes and hardware. Next to that, they are supposed to involve insights from monitoring. 

Schäfer: "Digitization makes the work so much easier and more effective. Because of that, processes can be automatized and new business fields opened up. However, looking at it from the point of security and dependence of data, it also makes companies much more dependent on the IT. Through holistic concepts, instead of specific measures, we can close the gap between people, machines and software."
