Risk management and IT security

If you operate risk management in IT, you not only protect your IT infrastructure – you also protect and secure the knowledge, the know-how, quasi the right to exist of your company. This is why it is so important not only to work through checklists, but also to create a sound, technical framework that not only provides you with important information on the security status, but also generates the ability to act.

IT security as knowledge risk management

The Information Security Management System (ISMS) serves to implement information security permanently in your company. KRITIS companies in particular should have established an ISMS. However, small and medium-sized companies would also do well to integrate this topic into their everyday business organization.

Together with the responsible persons of the IT department, the management should develop a knowledge risk management for the area of IT security.

In the beginning there is a need to get an overview. On the one hand, which systems are used in total. On the other hand how sensitive the data stored and processed on the respective systems are.

The information collected in the first step serves as a basis for determining and evaluating the security status of the recorded systems. Of course, special attention should be paid to the sensitive systems. However, the rest of the IT infrastructure must not be ignored either. The general security level is always determined by the worst secured system, as it can serve as an entry point for hackers.

If two blatant and critical security risks are identified in step 1, the first step is to remedy them. The next step is to create a concept for continuous IT hygiene. Within this framework, daily tasks are defined which prevent new security gaps from arising.

If two glaring and critical security risks are identified in step 1, the first step is to fix them. The next step is to create a concept for continuous IT hygiene. Within this framework, daily tasks are defined which prevent new security gaps from arising.

At regular meetings, the head of the IT department reports to management on the security status of the IT and any cyberattacks that may have taken place. Key figures defined in advance and clear reporting help to identify developments and determine actions to counteract negative trends.
