Due to increasing digitalisation, critical infrastructures in particular are becoming more and more vulnerable to internal and external attacks. Special protection of these at the same time means protection of our company.

In July 2015, the Act on Increasing the Security of Information Technology Systems (IT Security Act) came into force. Together with the CRITIS regulation published in 2016 and 2017, the implementation and proof of general as well as sector-specific security measures and a reporting obligation are required. The corresponding transition periods for all affected business entities expire in mid-2019.
