From data theft to ransomware: according to the BSI (Federal Office for Information Security), the number of cyberattacks has increased significantly in 2016. This is also recorded by SECUrisk based on an increased demand for IT security. The division specializes in information security within the DATA CENTER GROUP. Digitalization should not forget the need to protect data, applications and processes. That is what experts say.

Unfortunately, only a few people in charge are aware of the consequences that come with an increasing automation for the existential dependency and availability of IT-infrastructures. And not only medium-sized companies are affected. Authorities and international corporations often neglect the necessary protection of the IT infrastructure too, which has become compulsory through digitization and big data. A remedy could be overall concepts. In addition to corresponding protective measures for processes and hardware, IT-managers should also train the correct handling of digitization and, above all, incorporate monitoring findings.

"Digitalization makes work easier and more effective. Processes can be automated and new business areas opened up. However, from the point of view of security and availability of data, it also creates a higher dependency on IT. Through overall concepts, not individual measures, the challenge succeeds in closing the gaps in the interfaces between man, machine and software", says an expert.
