Information Security

Informed, self-determined, and secure in the digital world.

What is information security?

Information security is of great importance wherever sensitive data is stored, processed, or passed on. Information security therefore refers to the protection of sensitive data or systems from unauthorized access, manipulation, or loss. The aim is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

Information security protection goals

  • Confidentiality: Data and information are only accessible to authorized persons.
  • Integrity: Data and information are protected against unauthorized changes.
  • Availability: Data and information can be retrieved and are not lost.


Information security in companies

For companies and organizations, measures to prevent security incidents and meet legal requirements are relevant. By implementing security measures such as encryption, access control, and training, companies can protect their data from cyberattacks and data breaches. 

Challenges for companies

Challenges frequently arise in the development, implementation, and review of information security concepts, such as:

  • Incomplete knowledge of laws, standards, and individual protection requirements
  • Tensions between information security and economic feasibility
  • Lack of trust in digital business models
  • Exposure of sensitive data in networked systems
  • Insecurity regarding GDPR-compliant implementation
  • High effort for carrying out and verifying security and compliance checks
