A study by G DATA, Statista and brand eins confirms that IT security in the DACH region is in a poor state. Many organizations still believe that attackers are not interested in them. The organizations that are aware of the dangers are plagued by staff shortages: qualified IT security experts are scarce. Quote from the study: “In companies with fewer than 50 employees, 68 percent talk about a lack of personnel. In large companies with more than 1,000 employees, only 11.3 percent complain of a lack of personnel.”

IT security: prevention instead of reaction

The fear of an IT emergency is great, regardless of the size of the organization. In our opinion, prevention is the order of the day. A holistic IT and information security strategy not only includes planning for an emergency (“incident response”), but also precisely those activities that prevent an emergency from happening in the first place.
