Why is the creation of an IT security concept important?

Companies are increasingly under attack. These attacks are directed against both large and small companies and can cause considerable damage. A well-thought-out IT security concept can protect you from the effects and consequences of such attacks.

What does an IT security concept need?

A holistic IT security concept combines technical and organizational measures and can minimize potential risks and dangers. In this context, it is important that security gaps in the company’s own IT are quickly identified and closed to ensure information security.

Goals of our IT security concept:

1.) Basic IT security

The IT security concept increases the level of protection of your confidential information. Based on a guideline of goals, guidelines and IT security measures, we analyze and accompany your company to protect it as well as possible against threats.

2.) Long-term solutions

IT security concepts are a continuous, sustainable process that can improve information security management in the long term and also define at what intervals which topics need to be reviewed or implemented in the future to anchor continuity in practice.

3.) Avoid system failures

Part of IT security management is also preparing for the event of a loss because the creation of an IT security concept also includes an emergency plan to minimize the damage as well as the recovery time in the event of IT security incidents and to quickly restore the ability to work without unnecessarily hindering reconnaissance.

4.) Identify future threats at an early stage

In addition to handling and defending against attacks, a concept must be in place to deal with future threat scenarios and prevent any negative effects. This includes, for example, specifications and guidelines on who is responsible for which scenarios and which communication processes must be followed (incident response plan)

Legal significance of IT security concepts

The level of IT security is also increasingly being assessed by auditors, shareholders or investors. In addition, customers, cooperation partners, insurance companies and, in some cases, the legislature itself prescribe a certain standard of IT security. As a result, the topic is becoming very important for the ability of companies to act and for their future.

Most important questions about the IT security concept

What is the IT security concept about?
Important company data such as manufacturing processes, know-how, personal data and customer information must be protected. The GDPR sets out the guidelines and obligations for this. Companies must, therefore, always be able to demonstrate how they handle and protect the data of their employees, customers and suppliers. We are happy to support you for a smooth process and sufficient security.
How can I prevent hacker attacks?
To prevent IT security incidents, good preparation is essential. To protect your company (e.g. from cyber attacks), we create not only an IT security concept for daily operations, but also an emergency plan to be able to gradually switch back from emergency operation to regular operation in the event of an emergency, keeping the damage and recovery time as low as possible in the process without unnecessarily hindering reconnaissance.
How does the concept adapt to the ever-changing information technology?
For us, the creation of an IT security concept is not a one-off action, but a long-term monitoring and evaluation of your company's IT security. The measures introduced are carried out according to a defined schedule and are, of course, adjusted as required.
Why is an IT security concept important?
IT security is vital for companies to survive, as IT security risks on a global level are considered the main risk threatening companies today. Therefore, the topic should be taken seriously, and a sustainable IT security concept should be developed.
