IT security for SMEs

Text excerpt: “What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity encompasses a variety of measures and practices aimed at protecting your company’s computer systems, networks and data. The aim is to prevent unauthorized access, theft and damage as effectively as possible. In view of the increasing digitalization of the workplace, cybersecurity should be a central component of your IT strategy.

In an increasingly digital and networked business world, cybersecurity is becoming ever more important as the number of cyberattacks also increases. The topic is therefore becoming increasingly important in all areas of the economy, in institutions, infrastructure facilities and even in the private sector. With growing networking through cloud solutions, working from home and digitalization measures, there are more and more potential gateways for hackers, which also increases the costs caused by cyber attacks.

The implementation of cybersecurity goes beyond purely technical solutions. Access control and monitoring technologies are important, but not sufficient on their own. It is just as important to take the human factor into account. Regular training and sensitization of employees are necessary to ensure that they act in a security-conscious manner and do not allow vulnerabilities to arise.
