New IT Basic Protection Compendium 2019

With its new IT-Grundschutz-Kompendium, the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) offers companies and authorities of all sizes the support they need to quickly determine the appropriate security measures. Concrete security requirements are explained for implementation.

The IT-Grundschutz methodology uses a modular principle that is divided into ten layers and deals with information security issues - from applications (APP) to industrial IT (IND) and security management (ISMS).

A risk assessment for areas with normal protection requirements was already carried out during the creation of the building blocks. The requirements in the modules represent the current state of the art. Thus, the heterogeneous area of information technology, including the operational environment, can be better structured and planned. In the individual modules, standardized security requirements for typical business processes, applications and IT systems are described in individual modules.

The aim of IT basic protection is to achieve adequate protection for all information of institutions. Since 1 February 2018, the IT-Grundschutz Compendium has served as a test basis for certifications according to ISO 27001 on the basis of IT-Grundschutz.

The new edition of the IT-Grundschutz Compendium published in February 2019 extends 80 IT basic modules of the 1st version from 2018 by a further 14. 36 modules of the previous version have also been revised in order to provide institutions with an even more comprehensive basis for comprehensive protection.

Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity also offers reliable solutions for a successful and secure digitalization based on the IT basic protection recommended by the BSI. Cyberattacks are complex and opaque; this should not apply to cybersecurity. In line with the building blocks of basic IT protection, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity guides companies and public authorities through the challenges of a connected world with proactive solutions for desktop, application & cloud, network and mobile security.
