Value-enhancing IT security

Secure your business success

In recent years, ifm services has specialised in the areas of Industry 4.0 and IT security in order to be a sustainable partner for its medium-sized customers. One thing is certain, an Industry 4.0 strategy only has completely positive effects on a company's success, as long as your data is protected. Why? Future strategies such as digitisation, the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 and their technical innovations are leading to data being collected on an unprecedented scale and assigned value. The ten most successful and valuable companies in the world have one thing in common: their business models are based on the use of data. Their business capital is predominantly derived from the value they generate from the data they collect.

Among other things, the value of corporate data is based on the fact that companies can use targeted information to optimise their value chain, better determine the demand for their products and develop an advantage in the market to ensure their economic survival. Data is therefore now considered part of a company's capital.

However, this data can also generate greed and lead to an increased risk of becoming a target for cyberattacks. Therefore, an Industry 4.0 or IoT strategy can only be successfully implemented in the long term if data analysts and IT security experts work together. It is often difficult for companies to successfully take on this important task just with their own human resources.

With our extensive experience, we help to create and implement a preventive IT security strategy and contingency plans. Secure your business success and protect your value. We are happy to advise you!
