Digital products and goods are on the rise. However, in addition to new opportunities and chances, the digitization of products also brings various dangers and an increased surface for attacks. According to the status report by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), the three biggest threats to the economy are ransomware, dependency within the IT supply chain and vulnerabilities such as open or incorrectly configured online servers. Cybersecurity and data protection must therefore be given a much higher priority in digital products and must be taken into account as early as the product development stage (by design). Manufacturers who neglect cybersecurity and data protection will never be able to fully exploit the potential of digitization and, in the worst-case scenario, will fail with the digitization of their products.
In this white paper, Stefan Hessel and Christina Kiefer show, which obligations manufacturers must fulfil during development and the consequences of non-compliance.
