The pressure on European companies is significantly tightened by the German legislator and the EU with regard to cybersecurity – rightly so – because in the past decades most companies have neglected to ignore the latest methods of attack on their digital knowledge. Product data, patents, procedures and other company secrets were often stolen in Cyber-Attack. It is not just the companies that are at fault, but the lack of advice, failures of the legislator, insufficient education at universities, the insufficient number of manufacturers of European security assets, the lack of well-trained staff and, in particular, the ability to think like the attacker.
