IT Security

Protection of the data and infrastructure required and created for the digitalization of administrative services is of overriding importance. Detecon provides to its public administration clients the support they require to secure their operations so that they can offer to their citizens safe and reliable administrative services. The primary focus here is usually on making sure that the protection goals of confidentiality, availability, and integrity of data and systems are met. With these targets in mind, Detecon offers an extensive range of consulting services from conceptual design and testing to implementation of measures establishing the appropriate level of protection.

The elements of data protection and critical infrastructure play a particularly important role in public administration. The majority of administrative services generate sensitive or personal data or data that can be traced back to specific individuals, all of which demand a high level of protection. The overall structure of the system as well as these specific elements must be taken into account so that any risks that exist can be identified precisely. The measures thus determined range from the implementation of regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and frameworks such as the BSI’s IT-Grundschutz to the use of modern technical solutions such as blockchain and artificial intelligence.

BSI IT-Grundschutz

IT-Grundschutz designates a procedure developed by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) to identify and implement security measures for a company’s own information technology, the aim being the achievement of the required level of protection. Public administration and the business world regard IT-Grundschutz as a benchmark applied during the development of a management system for information security and the protection of information. The broad scope of BSI’s fundamental protection regulations means it is possible to assess the requirements for companies of any size and to find the right solution for every need. Detecon has already counseled a large number of private and public sector clients on IT-Grundschutz and has had a wealth of experience in this area. Secure and practiced utilization of the IT-Grundschutz modules is a matter of course for Detecon.

AI for security in public administration

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool for IT security. One of the greatest challenges to IT security – the enormous quantities of data generated and required by today’s infrastructures – can be more competently managed through the use of AI. Modern AI solutions are able to collect information about security threats from millions of research reports, blogs, and news articles. With the aid of these solutions, meaningful information can automatically be filtered out of a plethora of possible warning messages, considerably shortening response time and reducing human error. This methodology is mostly used as a support tool and as such can be of significant benefit to experts when making decisions. The quantities and diversity of sensitive data created and collected in public administration are attracting more and more attention from attackers. The use of anomaly detection systems based on artificial intelligence can quickly detect and ward off attacks. Detecon has had extensive consulting experience in the field of artificial intelligence for security and offers to you the service of experts who can provide you with excellent support during your search for solutions featuring state-of-the-art security measures.
