IT Security – Know How Germany-wide
Information security starts with protecting individual files and extends to securing cloud services and data centers. The ISO 27001 standard provides a framework for an information security management system. This can be applied to any size and form of organization, from one to hundreds of thousands of employees, and includes topics such as personnel security, physical and environmental security, and mobile devices, in addition to IT.
Protecting information assets has three main goals: Confidentiality of information, integrity of information and systems, and availability of information and systems. Protecting IT systems from failure and ensuring that IT systems are sufficiently resilient is fundamental to maintaining business operations and business continuity.
In the event of an increased need for protection, the establishment of an information security management system has proven its worth. Based on a risk analysis, the company’s information assets are identified and systematically protected by defining and implementing measures. It is possible to carry out an audit according to ISO 27001 and to prove to customers and clients the professional handling of your data by means of an official certificate.
