Motivation: Why do I need an IT Security budget?

Teaser for Calculation on the bottom

  • What am I protecting?
  • What is it worth?
  • Who is implicated if I loose it? (Me vs. Customers)
  • How much do I have to pay in the worst case? (Ausfall-Kosten, Wiederherstellung, …)
  • Can I justify, I did enough?
  • Can I justify, I did everything I could?
  • GDPR, Trust Lose, Company Reputation and other reasons to spend more (Being pro-active instead of reactive)
  • Outsourcing expert knowledge
  • If I have an IT Security Insurance (against Hacking), is that enough?
  • Automated Security Tests give you a constant security status of your application. Know your weakness!
