Cyber and IT security

Cyber­security aspects to be con­sidered during design phase

Everybody is talking about cybersecurity. The number of hacker attacks is increasing and the sometimes-severe impacts on affected companies and institutions become visible. However, serious incidents are usually an unfortunate concatenation of weak spots: human error, negligence, design flaws.

Whilst cyber­security mainly deals with technical solutions that safeguard data con­fidentia­lity and that guarantee integrity as well as availa­bility in case of attack, our consul­ting focus is on the cyber resilience of civil and military plat­forms.

Most notably, we support our clients from the aero­space and defence industry about neces­sary adjust­ments of organi­sation and processes to allow for the intro­duction of inherent design features to prevent and with­stand attacks.
