Help with IT incidents: secunet is the first BSI-certified company for handling incidents

secunet is the first IT security service provider in Germany to be listed by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for the scope "incident handling" and is also the first registered IT security service provider of the Cyber Security Network (CSN) – a voluntary association of qualified experts for IT incident handling. The certified cyber security service providers are meant to help companies respond quickly to security incidents and successfully defend against them.

The secunet test centre has already been serving the areas of conformity with technical guidelines, information security management systems (ISMS) and penetration tests for many years, thus providing support in averting threats. The new area now expands this portfolio by adding various services as part of a step-by-step approach to handling security incidents, which are carried out by a team of BSI-certified incident experts.

Specifically, these are:

  • Analysis of complex IT security incidents, especially on site
  • Rapid containment of the extent of damage caused by a major IT security incident
  • Determination of the causes of complex attacks
  • Recovery of various affected systems after an IT security incident

"Companies are often overwhelmed with the management of IT security incidents. Particularly in complex cases requiring strong technical expertise and experience in incident analysis and handling and demanding personnel capacities, the IT department quickly reaches its breaking point. In this case, a certified IT security service provider can help," explains Holger Funke, Director Business Development, who is responsible for managing the test centre.
