That's why consulting is so important

Focus on your core business and leave the IT security to our certified consultants. Keeping your data and IT systems protected is becoming an increasingly complex challenge. We begin by establishing your baseline and identifying vulnerabilities. Next, we upgrade your security where necessary, raise awareness among your employees, and establish a security and backup solution. With our ongoing penetration tests and monitoring tools, we can identify problems and fix them right away.

Threats without a mature IT security plan

Cybercriminals can quickly find vulnerabilities in systems and flood corporate networks with malware such as viruses, worms or Trojans. The malware searches for further vulnerabilities and access points into the company's system. Even if the exploited vulnerability exploited is fixed, the malware can continue to spread throughout the network, stealing data, encrypting files and causing immense damage.

The human factor in IT security

We can raise your employees' awareness of IT security together with our data protection officer as part of our services. We provide basic seminars and workshops as well as regular information on current threats and establish guidelines for secure passwords and secure email use. This is particularly useful for logistics employees who have not been extensively trained on this issue. And employees can only actively contribute to information security if they have been properly trained.

Impacts of cyberattacks

Ransomware – also called encryption Trojans – has been a relatively recent scourge of the business community. Once it has penetrated the target system, it blocks access and encrypts all the data. Blackmail attempts often follow. Even if the ransom is paid, access is not necessarily unlocked again. Attacks on corporate network can unfold in many different ways, so there should be a very rigorous IT security plan containing appropriate measures to ward off an attack. Other attack methods include DoS (denial of service) or DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks. These attacks hit the target system with so many requests that it becomes paralysed.

Basic protection is not enough

Hackers never tire of finding every conceivable vulnerability. That means you have to constantly update your own security measures, too. Basic protection includes firewalls and virus scanners, password protection on all devices and regular backups. However, true protection from hackers requires additional measures, including encrypting network connections, electronic access controls, access logs, penetration tests, encryption of voice and email communication and data carriers and much more.

Professional consulting to increase your IT security standards

We work with you to identify risks and areas of action in order to make your logistics IT future-proof. We begin by performing a penetration test to assess your current IT security setup. We examine your IT systems very closely, identify security vulnerabilities and issue a risk assessment with recommended actions. In an IT security plan, we identify risks and threats to your data and systems, especially with regard to your supply chain, and define goals and measures to increase security and prevent attacks and system failures.

To seal off all attack vectors, we teach your employees how to identify phishing emails and malware before they get drawn in, thus protecting your IT infrastructure.Attacks can happen even when your security is extraordinarily strict. In that case, you need to be prepared and know exactly what to do to minimise the damage. That is why we will develop a sophisticated IT security and backup plan for you. It will get you back to work as quickly as possible so you can keep your logistics commitments.

Frequently asked questions

Is there a difference between IT security, information security and data protection?

There is no official definition for these terms, as they are interpreted differently depending on the context and go in the same direction. On the basis of their characteristics, however, the gradations can be represented and the terms can thus be separated: IT security describes the measures with which companies and their data are to be protected from damage and threats. This includes, for example, networks, cloud services and computers. The term cyber security (internet security) extends IT security to include the internet factor. Since most systems today communicate via the internet, the two terms are often equated. Information security goes beyond IT security. It encompasses the general protection of information that is also located in electronic and in non-technical or analogue systems. In addition, unlike data protection, information security makes no distinction as to whether the information is personal or not. The term is mainly found in the IT-Grundschutz catalogues of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and is used to identify and combat vulnerabilities in IT environments. Suitable measures to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data can be found in the BSI IT-Grundschutz catalogues as well as in the ISO/IEC-27000 series. Data protection deals with the protection of data and is sometimes described as a component of information security, as it is more comprehensive. The term is often linked with data protection. Nevertheless, it also makes no difference to data protection whether the data has a personal reference or not, or whether it is digital or analogue. Compared to the DSGVO, it is not examined whether the data may be processed, but how it can best be protected.
