Protection against hacker attacks
- Created by Michael Thomas, Dirk Münchhausen, Detlev Henze, Alexander Zeppelzauer
At regular intervals, the media report on hacker attacks on the IT systems of companies and organizations. The consequential damage is all too often serious for those affected. From the interruption of supply chains, to the blocking of all communication channels, to the loss of data. In most cases, the criminal organizations behind the attacks use a simple means: employees' carelessness in handling their own e-mail inboxes. For several years now, phishing has been the main gateway for attackers to inconspicuously infiltrate malicious code into IT systems. And the trend is rising.
Detlev Henze, managing director TÜV AUSTRIA IT security service provider TÜV TRUST IT: "Due to the ever more refined attack methods, it is now essential to act with great caution at the slightest doubt about an e-mail. This requires the assistance of every single employee.“
TÜV AUSTRIA's cybersecurity experts provide targeted support to companies and organizations to minimize the dangers of cyberattacks. This is made possible by business impact analyses, risk management, contingency plans and tailored employee security awareness training to identify potential threats in good time.
TÜV TRUST IT also offers structured support in the event of a loss and professional assistance in restoring IT infrastructures and data.
