How Bodo is building a better working world
“Do you think your data is safe? It’s not!
Several breaches of well-known companies have shown that there is no 100% security. It's not a question of if, but when, you will be attacked.
Hackers work silently and remain hidden. On average, attacks are discovered as late as 205 days thereafter. Those who are prepared – ideally even before an emergency – can react faster. This may help protect the company’s reputation.
I look beyond technology, taking the human factor into account. With regular training sessions, I help people learn about typical entry gates and what to do in an emergency.
Using technology like digital fingerprints and sophisticated data analyses, my team of digital forensics investigators pursue and, in the best case, track down hackers that are attacking your company. My clients and I face the risks together – I help them develop individual security strategies to prepare for future attacks.”
