Data Protection Support

Does your organization fully understand what information can legally be collected from a customer, employee or patient? Are you aware of how long you store this sensitive information, or how the data has to be protected from unauthorized third parties?

The experts at TUV Rheinland OpenSky can provide optimal support for all data protection projects and for the continuous proper handling of sensitive, personal data. As data privacy consultants, we can help your company introduce and implement a data protection management system, and we can even appoint an external data protection official for your organization.

Email Content Security Filter

Your company email is a vulnerability that can allow viruses, trojan horses, spyware and spam to disrupt your business. All organizations need to identify and block malware at the email gateway to their network. TUV Rheinland Opensky offers an integrated solution that complies with the overall security of an organization. We can also provide a multi-faceted tool so you can easily implement communication guidelines and email content internally.

Penetration Testing and IT Security Analysis

Professional hackers can and will take every opportunity to penetrate any organization through vulnerabilities in their network, IT system, applications or any mobile devices. This information is then manipulated to steal business and/or consumer information.  As made evident in recent events, no company is too large or too small for this type of attack. Think you know your organization’s weak points or vulnerabilities in your system? Internal and external penetration tests and IT security analysis may prove you wrong.

TUV Rheinland OpenSky looks at your company’s IT infrastructure from the perspective of the hacker. During these penetration tests, we simulate a realistic cyberattack and can pinpoint vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure before attackers have a chance to exploit them. We then recommend the best solutions to protect your business assets and sensitive customer data from wrongful access.

Managed Log Collection

The volume of logs in a modern digital enterprise is massive and grows continuously. Yet, when centralized into a scalable data analytics platform, the real-time visibility into this data can provide meaningful insights into behaviors and activities to effectively detect threats. Centralized log management and monitoring can also satisfy many security compliance requirements. TUV Rheinland OpenSky works with companies to determine the technology and data to include in the centralized log management service. We then provide guidance to create or update the organization’s enterprise log management policy, as well as lead practices for technology-specific logging. Our security experts design a data collection architecture that provides an affordable solution to log all of your security data, both for analytics and retention.
