IT security, data security
The security of data is a central issue for IT departments – not only because the legislator demands high standards with the GDPR. Three aspects are critical to sensitive data: confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
Encryption and access management
Sensitive data may only be accessible to authorized persons. This requires data protection measures in the transfer of data as well as effective access management.
We set up encryption techniques that reliably ensure in the background that unauthorized access to transmitted data is not possible. Emails from one service to another are encrypted in the same way as data transmitted via mobile devices or stored in the cloud.
IT security vs. data security also affects data protection within the company. Not all employees should be able to access all the information. Effective access management ensures this. Access management determines who can access what data.
Modern access systems allow more than a distinction between management and staff. For example, specify that you do not want to be able to access internal databases from unsecured networks.Determine your own access classes for each employee or group. Define in detail what permanent employees, freelancers, sales representatives, customers, or suppliers should and should not see.
Data Integrity: No Change Without Documentation
Data security also necessarily means data integrity. Data integrity means that changes to documents and databases cannot be made without complete documentation. Our solutions ensure that every action is automatically documented.
Backups for data security
Your data must not be lost under any circumstances. That’s why we install backup systems that automatically back up and store all data in two different data centers (redundancy). The backups run silently in the background and do not interfere with the running operation.
Data must be available
What’s the point of having your data secure, but cumbersome access to it inhibits productivity? Data security means being able to reliably access the data you need. Customers, suppliers, sales representatives, branch offices: All these parties must be able to rely on quick access and instant synchronization.
Finding and closing security vulnerabilities
With us, you get exactly the data security solution you need. As a first step, we take stock and examine your entire IT landscape for potential security vulnerabilities. Then we develop a tailor-made concept for data security and implement it.
By the way: You meet the requirements of the GDPR with our security concepts.
