NTT Cybersecurity Talks with Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag

CyberSecurity is a business enabler

Kai Grunwitz – NTT Security

Hans-Wilhelm Dünn – President Cyber-Sicherheitsrat Deutschland e.V

Kai Grunwitz: So you know we all discussed smart societies, we discuss IOT, and cloud is omnipresent, it’s all around us. A lot of people see cybersecurity as an inhibitor of accelerating the digital transformation in that direction. So my question is now for your Hans at first, how do you see the situation here? Do you agree with the statement that cybersecurity is an inhibitor for the transformation?

Hans-Wilhelm Dünn: No, I think cybersecurity is a central process and business enabler. And if you see the backbone of the German industry are the SME’s and if you have a total failure of the IT infrastructure of a SME in Germany, after two days you have the first cash out. And I think that is existential and there you can see how important it is.
