Businesses take care of your unwanted flow of corporate information security, theft and sabotage mean the risk of loss of sales and order, a huge reputational damage and loss of lead in development and competitiveness of businesses. For some, it means bankruptcy. Especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, the number of claims is high and increases the average damage per case. Corporations are only marginally affected, here, departments provide enterprise security for the necessary and economically reasonable level of protection. Many companies don’t dare but to engage an extra consultant. Understandable, because one of external reluctant look the cards. Someone with graduating BA safety management as head of security set? Apparently for many companies (still) too expensive.
Remains the upskilling of existing management, so that knowledge of threats and protection concepts can be exist and used in the company. There are the equivalent of “already long: now gathering information about competitors to the management element is raised, called competitive intelligence”. The effort to protect sensitive information against the effort, information about the competitor to the experience, is there much lower. Just as legal regulations must be observed anyway (E.g., KonTrG, BDSG). It is very important to break the naivety of many employees and to indicate the hazards and procedures.
A handful of clear rules coupled with friendly distrust immensely increases the level of protection in small enterprises. Contents of the course are an intensive examination of the threats such as espionage, sabotage, social engineering, product contamination, terrorism in addition to the basics of security management. Employee crime, legal frameworks, basics of basics of quality management, IT security and personnel testing make the tools for the creation together with basics of building backup and safety analysis methods and implementation of security concepts. Last information about safety culture and leadership theory, risk and crisis management and travel security complete the online training, which ends with a day and a written exam. On this day, the developed concepts of security are discussed. Prerequisite for participation in the training program of safety management is establishing a higher education or a master craftsman with at least three years experience.
