Hosters serve customers in all kinds of industries and therefore have to meet a whole range of diverse requirements, including a broad catalogue of requirements for the hardware and software used. This highly competitive market requires precise planning in order to secure limited margins.
IT security for data centers
Hosters´ data centers are an attractive target for cybercriminals as a successful attack can potentially harm a large number of companies and web portals at the same time.
Customers‘ legal requirements apply to hosters
Due to the increased threat level, strict IT security requirements apply to hosters, including their customers‘ regulatory requirements . For example, hosters’ data centers may have to comply with ITIL, ISO, TSI, BaFin and BSI regulation. Operators must also comply with the BSI basic IT protection and the availability classifications. Any hoster who counts companies from the critical infrastructures (KRITIS) sector among their customers must meet even higher standards as prescribed by the IT Security Act, because the required security measures also apply to downstream service providers. In this case, for example, hosters must prove that they use all available cyber security mechanisms to protect their systems and have their security mechanisms audited regularly.
The cost of data leaks
Violations of the regulatory requirements for data security and data protection are subject to heavy fines of up to 20 million euros, or up to four percent of the annual revenue generated worldwide – whichever is higher. If sensitive customer data falls into the hands of third parties due to negligence, the German Criminal Code specifies severe fines, and even imprisonment, for the responsible managers.
