IT Security – it’s a hard game!  

Play hard: The danger is real - protect your company! 

The majority of companies consider their business existence to be threatened by cyberattacks
(Bitkom, 2023). For IT security managers, this threat is real - IT security specialists, CISOs and top management are facing growing challenges.
Social engineering, extortion following ransomware attacks or unforeseen dangers in the software supply chain can not only result in massive economic damage, they can also harm reputations.
Government bodies are also increasingly confronted with the challenge of hackers. AI-generated content blurs the line between reality and manipulation.
Those responsible are therefore called upon to act now.
