Dive with us into the world of hackers, data espionage, and attack defense - several times a week for free!

Phishing, ransomware, data espionage - the list of cyber threats is long. At the same time, cyber criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated and professional. Consequently, the risk of becoming a victim of a cyberattack continues to increase in Germany and around the world. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular usually do not have the necessary resources to detect cyberattacks themselves in time and thus be able to defend themselves. The demand for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) and their diverse range of services is therefore unabatedly high. We reveal what you should look for when choosing an external service provider.

As infrastructures and devices become increasingly digitised and interconnected, the potential attack surface for successful cyberattacks also grows. The position of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is therefore becoming increasingly common in Germany. Since he is responsible for the comprehensive cyber security strategy in companies or organisations - and thus essentially for the protection of sensitive data - the demands on professional and personal skills are immensely high. The long career path to becoming a CISO usually pays off: An attractive salary and good promotion prospects are just two of the advantages that come with the job as CISO. It is precisely the diverse challenges of the job description that offer the CISO great career potential.

In the latest Google Threat Horizons Report (April 2023), Google experts warn that the Chinese state-sponsored hacking group APT41 is misusing the Google Command and Control (GC2) tool for cyber attacks. According to the experts, GC2 has been used to attack Taiwanese media companies and an unnamed Italian recruitment firm.

IT security plays a particularly important role at Kellner Telecom GmbH. Not only because the medium-sized company works with corporate customers from the critical infrastructure sector who demand IT security standards that can be proven by ISO certifications. ACD, the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service from Allgeier secion, helps the company to meet the high security requirements of its KRITIS customers.
