The digital transformation is rapidly gaining momentum. This applies to all areas of information and communication technologies, mobile communication, cloud computing, Industry 4.0, automated networks of machines (or Internet of Things), and the issue of data. All digitization opportunities must be taken advantage of in order to make your company more efficient, improve customer benefits, and develop new products. The issue of security is interdisciplinary and will impact companies of any size and throughout all of their sectors. Data and information traffic requires safety measures and corresponding testing concepts because the number of attacks on server structures and applications is increasing in intensity.
TÜV AUSTRIA supports customers with a precisely defined portfolio of standards-based, methodical services in the identification of informational values. The group also helps define an economically viable security level via security analyses, the conception and implementation of suitable processes, right through to documenting the achieved status. With the introduction of an information security management system (ISMS) in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001:2013, processes are established to protect informational confidentiality, integrity, availability, and authenticity. With “Trusted Industry 4.0” IT solutions, companies with communicating devices and large amounts of data and information can achieve an appropriate level of security.
