Effective protection of critical infrastructures
Increasing digital networking simultaneously creates both opportunity and risk. While digitalization has spurred entirely new industries, existing companies are now able to reach customers and business partners around the world at any time of the day. In addition to all the possibilities, however, there are a number of threats challenging companies, especially those providing critical infrastructure. In 2017, the "WannaCry" malware caused a worldwide stir and affected numerous hospitals of the National Health Service in Great Britain. More than 26 million records with sensitive data were compromised in the large-scale computer attack and financial losses totaled a whopping 92 million pounds.
