Securing the backbone of digitisation

In today's age of digitised and inter-organisational business processes, the state, industry and economy rely on information and communication services for their operability and value creation. As digitisation progresses in all sectors of the economy and industry, the information technology and telecommunications sector provides ever more centralised resources and services to Critical Infrastructure operators of other CRITIS sectors. The dependence of operators on IT infrastructures and IT services increases, and this in turn leads to considerably higher security requirements.
