Defend against cyber threats
Cyberattacks are more common (and usually more expensive) than traditional burglary. Most hotels are probably insured against classic theft, and video cameras and security locks are designed to prevent break-ins. But what about the IT landscape? In 2022, approximately 85,000 (Austria just over 6,000) burglaries of houses and apartments were reported in Germany, and at the same time 120,000 (Austria 60,000!) cybercrime cases were reported. In addition to specialist knowledge, permanent vigilance and speed of reaction are therefore required. Because the cyber world is constantly on the move: Hackers are attacking more and more individually to obtain sensitive data and extort ransom.
