IT-security vs. Investment costs
Companies are often reluctant to invest in IT-security – which is rather incomprehensible regarding the damages, which can occur after a security incident. Companies should know their IT-security risks at least and draw a cost-benefit calculation to establish an individual security concept.
Although the news are rife with security incidents there is still quite a number of companies, which assume that they are not in danger of becoming target of a cyber-attacks or security incidents. But researches show, that every second enterprise – no matter which size – was targeted already.
Compared to the costs and problems, which come along with a security incident investment costs are rather manageable. The consequences of such an incident vary from the loss of data to loss of production and profit to recourse claims, penalties, image damage and loss of partner and customer. According a survey of the Ponemon Institute a data breach in Germany costs 3.42 million EUR on average. From May 2018 those costs will increase, as the penalties for data breaches will rise and are subject to report.
Every company, which has not yet looked into the subject of IT-security or is still the opinion that a firewall and virus-protection will do it, should inform themselves immediately, what the best available technology is and which requirements have to be met for an adequate information security and data protection.
