External IT security officer
for your company in Germany

The introduction and implementation of an IT security management system (ISMS) to ensure corporate data security is only possible with the appropriately qualified IT security officers (i.e. data security officials). These professionals in particularly are rare commodities on the market or cannot be sufficiently utilized in order to justify a permanent position. Therefore, for most companies (in Germany), the appointment of an external IT or data security officer is advisable.

As a general rule, the IT security officer should represent a supervisory/control function for internal or external IT. Extensive technical and organisational know-how is required for this.
