New Cyber Security Survey

The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has presented the results of its cyber security survey "Cyber Risks & Protective Measures in Companies 2018".

The online survey was conducted as part of the Alliance for Cyber Security. Since 2014, the risk situation and the extent to which German institutions are affected by cyber attacks and the implementation status of corresponding protective measures have been examined annually. The results of the survey are used to develop practical solutions and recommendations, which are made available to companies, authorities and other institutions by the BSI.

The most important results of the survey showed that the danger of cyber attacks by companies is still underestimated. For example, only one in twelve participants in the survey (around eight percent) sees a relevant threat to operational capability from cyber attacks. The fact that these can, however, have serious consequences can be seen from the fact that around 87 percent of those affected by cyber security incidents stated that there had been operational disruptions or failures in 2018. In addition, there were often costs for clarifying incidents and restoring IT systems (65 percent of those affected) as well as reputational damage (22 percent).

In 2018, every third participating company (33 percent) was affected by cyber security incidents.

Based on the recommendations of the BSI, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity also offers reliable solutions for successful and secure digitization. Because: cyber attacks are complex and opaque, which should not apply to cybersecurity. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity guides companies and public authorities through the challenges of the networked world with proactive solutions for desktop, application & cloud, network and mobile security.
