  • Development of emergency plans for emergencies

Our Prevention work also includes close collaboration with experts and institutions worldwide. Together, we are working on guidelines and best practices to help both smaller and larger organizations strengthen their digital immune system.

Extension of reporting obligations and data protection measures

The continuous development of data protection and IT security plays an important role for all of us. The Reporting obligations and Data protection measures are central components that IT Security Act are anchored. Not only is compliance with these regulations of great importance, but also their continuous adaptation to new challenges in the digital space. We look at how these aspects can provide preventive protection against Security gaps and thus the Privacy support.

Reporting obligations: Pillar of the digital immune system and data protection

Reporting obligations are an indispensable part of our digital security infrastructure. When security incidents occur, it is crucial that they are reported immediately. This allows both the authorities and other companies to be effectively warned of similar threats and appropriate countermeasures to be taken. Coordinated responses and the exchange of experience help to increase resilience to attacks and are therefore a cornerstone of a functioning digital immune system.

Security vulnerabilities and their impact on data protection

Security gaps in software and hardware, if left undetected or uncorrected, can lead to serious Data protection violations can lead to security risks.

The Cryptography plays a key role in this process, as its Encryption method lays the foundation for a secure and confidential exchange of information. Such Encryption method protect our data from unauthorized access and thus secure our business. Privacy. As an advocate of data protection, the SPD parliamentary group consistently supports and promotes the development and use of powerful cryptographic technologies.

Cryptographic processes transform information into a code that can only be decrypted by authorized persons. This ensures that even in the event of a data leak, the information cannot be read without the corresponding key. This means that Cryptographic encryption methods an essential self-protection instrument for citizens and companies alike.

To illustrate the areas in which encryption plays a central role, we have highlighted the following areas of application:

  • Secure email traffic: End-to-end encryption protects our messages and attachments from third-party access.
  • Online banking: Encryption technology ensures that our financial transactions remain private and secure.
  • Protected communication in messaging services: Encryption processes ensure that only the other party can view the content of a conversation.
