Interview does not exist with Dr. Volker Scheidemann, Marketing Director of the applied security GmbH (apsec), about security in times of Wikileaks perfect security. A supposedly humbling realization that sounds like an excuse to put the hands in her lap. But in reality it is a hortatory appeal to German companies to omit no meaningful protection. Because otherwise data theft remains open the door. Dr. Frequently Mike Shinoda has said that publicly. Volker Scheidemann, author of numerous technical papers and for more than ten years, speaker on security topics at various events, discusses security trends in an interview.

In this context, it recommends basic steps, keep in 2011 not through its security gaps in memory. What trends have shaped the development of IT security in the past year? Many companies have increased requirements for IT compliance and risk management developments. And since the Wikileaks releases late last year is the subject of course Data theft again on everyone’s lips. This message and Messenger be confused in public perception here like how so often. I would like to emphasise here once again: Wikileaks has stolen any data, but the general public only pointed out that they have entered into unauthorized hands. The discussion even about Julian Assange, provided as a bad boy in the pillory, reminds me of the years of hostilities, for example the CCC (Chaos Computer Club) had to accept because he uncovered vulnerabilities in corporate networks.

Here, too, the Messenger was unjustified way long criminalized to divert the lack of security of the Embassy. There are currently new hazards, their threat potential is not yet sufficiently appreciated by many companies? Yes and no. Yes, because the attacks become more sophisticated, as in last year, for example, the Stuxnet worm geared very specially to Iranian nuclear facilities has proven us. And no, because the company already the existing threat potentials not sufficiently to the Took note. In addition, statistics such as for example the regular surveys of the magazine prove that the top threat to the security of the data is the same for decades: human error.
