IT Security for public authoritiesis a matter of trust

IT security for authorities is more than just a matter of confidence

Secure public administration networks

A wide range of processes and tasks in administration these days are supported by IT, based on information technology that functions and secure information infrastructures. The growing threat to such infrastructures from cyber crime means that guaranteeing security in cyber space and protecting critical information infrastructures have become vitally important tasks. The Federal Republic has responded to this in part with a cyber security strategy, which includes setting up a National Cyber Defence Centre and National Cyber Security Council.

secunet is ideal to be entrusted with these special requirements, plus the specific public administration processes and systems for communities and Federal and national authorities. Not least, our expertise is based on years of successful collaboration with the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). Among other things, secunet has acted as a service provider, guiding and advising the Data Security Competence Centre for the BundOnline2005 initiative and numerous Federal Government e-Government projects. Our IT security specialists use this experience every day in every customer project. The IT security partnership, in operation with the Federal German Government since 2004, is an expression of the special trust placed in our specialists’ expertise.
