The issue of IT security is posing ever greater hazards and challenges for businesses and public administrations, while at the same time the data privacy regulations and requirements are becoming ever more exacting. valantic has been advising companies competently and comprehensively in both fields for many years, while at the same time offering holistic implementation of our proposed solutions and helping companies and organizations master crises – such as a cyber attacks or a data leaks – should one arise.
Cyber attacks usually cause immense costs that are avoidable. The Information Security Management portfolio of valantic and our subsidiary INTARGIA offers a comprehensive security concept that includes disaster recovery planning for emergencies as well as a stable business continuity management strategy. Regular checks verify that these are up to date and fit for purpose, thereby enabling businesses to confine any damage caused.
Around a third of all German companies have been affected by cyberattacks in recent years; these have manifested themselves in the form of data theft, espionage and/or encrypted computer systems, with IT security vulnerabilities and phishing e-mails frequently offering cyberattackers a way in. With the help of our cybersecurity and -threat analytics, companies and public institutions can close critical loopholes before it becomes too late. Contact us now to develop a customized IT security and threat assessment.
Realistic emergency concepts and emergency drills help companies and employees successfully master crises and minimize the ensuing damage. valantic has developed a three-phase model to address these needs, ensuring that emergency drills generate the maximum possible value add and that companies really are protected against crises and cyber attacks. This way, crisis management is well rehearsed, long before the crisis actually occurs.
Rather than turmoil during a cyberattack, crisis management ensures swift and collected damage containment followed by a speedy return to regular operations. Professional crisis management includes immediate countermeasures, befitting stakeholder communication, compliance with legal guidelines and the prioritization of relevant business processes. valantic helps companies establish professional crisis management procedures, positioning them to respond appropriately to an IT security incident.
Data relating to employees, customers and suppliers are the most valuable asset that many companies possess. They must not be allowed to fall into the hands of dubious third parties, since this could cause enormous commercial, administrative and reputational damage, and possibly even incur severe fines under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) in some cases. valantic’s pragmatic data protection concept, which is suitable for medium-sized companies, helps customers in their endeavors to implement GDPR. Arrange a personal meeting now to discuss the topic of data protection and the legally compliant implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
In the event of IT crises and conflicts, it is vital to have audit-proof decisions and expert opinions that can be used in court and properly clarify core issues – such as the question of the objective status of an IT project. For over 15 years, our experts have been preparing analyses that can be used in court and fulfill the quality and professional code of conduct criteria applicable to publicly appointed and sworn experts.
