IT Safety Catalogue acc. to §11 Abs. 1a German EnWG

Your data deserve certified protection!

Today, the processes in an enterprise strongly depend on systems of information technology. Errors in these systems often have far-reaching effects on functioning and reliability of procedures critical for business. It does not matter very much whether they are caused by software mistakes, hackers, or targeted attacks such as encryption trojans. At the same time, information in the enterprise is processed by different departments or external online services (keyword “cloud”). In all these places, sensitive information such as contracts, patents, business reports, or personal data must be protected with regard to confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

ISO/IEC 27001:2017

ISO/IEC 27001:2017 represents the internationally leading standard describing the implementation and maintenance of a suitable information security management system („ISMS“). Core of this system is a central risk management in which all analyses of the threat situation are connected with suitable countermeasures. As guideline, ISO/IEC 27001:2017 provides a series of aspects to be considered, e.g. the establishment of a suitable patch management, an increase in the awareness of the employees, or the check of the physical safety. On the basis of the German Energy Industry Act (EnWG), operators of energy supply networks were already requested to establish an efficient information security management system and to prove this by a recognized certification body. In this case, in addition to DIN EN ISO 27001:2017, the IT safety catalogue according to §11 Abs. 1a German EnWG (“Sikat”) applies. It describes the minimum extent of the review as well as technical requirements to the special environment in this area of the “critical infrastructures”.
