The number of attacks on IT systems has

increased dramatically in recent years, with

the style and approach of such attacks

chan-ging on a daily basis. In addition to the spread

of new viruses, incidences of industrial

espio-nage are snowballing. Only the targeted use

of customized security solutions can protect

your company’s intellectual property.

New laws and policies require management and IT personnel to make constant adjustments and remain vigilant. The issue of ‘data security’ is therefore a top priority for companies. However, a considerable amount of effort and expenditure are necessary to maintain the highest level of security.

arvato Systems will be happy to advise you in this area. We also develop and implement solutions on-site that satisfy operational and legal requirements (such as Basel III, SAS 70, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, EU data privacy rules). Another option is to outsource your IT operations to our highly secure data centers.

Physical security is essential for providing IT services. Our data centers are effectively protected by numerous secu-rity features, including perimeter protection, individual access control systems, effective climate control techno-logy, highly sensitive early-warning fire prevention sys-tems, video surveillance inside and out, redundant power supplies, structural security zones, and geographically dispersed locations.

Only authorized persons are granted access to these areas. Our own on-site security personnel constantly monitor access to the property and buildings.

What use are technological security measures if there is no general security concept in place? A company’s management is not only responsible for leading the company, it also has to implement adequate safeguards against all types of risk.

Intellectual property can only be protected and the legal requirements only met (e.g., data protection regulations) by introducing an appropriate Information Security Management System (ISMS).

Drawing on our extensive experience with enterprise security standards, arvato Systems will also advise you

on organizational security. Cost-efficient measures to protect physical and logical assets can be implemented on the basis of an existing ISMS, providing high levels of security. The intervals for reviewing and documenting risks associated with operational systems and processes can be defined in this way. It also helps in the implementation, constant monitoring, and development of security goals and determination of suitable measures.

At the end of this process, every employee will have clear policies and guidelines at hand for how they should deal with information and the facilities.
