Focus on supply
Critical infrastructures are organizations or facilities of high relevance to the public sector. Their failure or impairment would result in sustained supply shortages, significant disruptions to public safety, or other dramatic consequences. They are therefore obliged under the BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security) Act to take comprehensive precautions to avoid disruptions and restrictions.
Strict IT security measures are required
- Integrated network monitoring through automated network access controls
- Early detection and remediation of anomalies and security vulnerabilities
- Extensive documentation and reporting requirements
