GIT SECURITY News March 2017


Dear Reader,

The discussion about IT security is in full swing and we all have to cope with the challenge of cyber security threats and that we need to make sure security equipment is not misused for cyberattacks. With this background, we were discussing the newest development in IT security and the human factor within data security in an interview with Ruud Toonders from Bosch Security Systems.

The discussion about cybersecurity is necessary, especially between vendors, integrators and end-users. But we need to be very cautious not to panic and to avoid allegations against competitors. Uncertainty in the market will lead to a setback for integrated security solutions which help security professionals in their daily work. Integration means cooperation, networking and constant product development and those factors are crucial for well-functioning up-to-date security systems especially up to their endpoints.

During Security Essen we did announce the winners of GIT SECURITY AWARD 2017. The Award is going into the next round now and is a great opportunity for the industry to introduce products to an international audience and to test how popular their products are.  If you work for a vendor of security or safety products we would like to invite you to apply for GIT SECURITY AWARD 2018 already now and submit your product entry. The registration page is open until March 31.

Best regards

Heiko Baumgartner for GIT's safety and security team
