The developments in the area of cybersecurity are alarming. As the number of smart devices in private households increases, so do the opportunities for cybercriminals to attack, TÜV Rheinland reveals.
Uncontrolled access to personal data undermines confidence in digital society. The logistics industry and private vehicles are increasingly being targeted by hackers.
“From our point of view, it is particularly serious that cybercrime is increasingly affecting our personal security and the stability of society as a whole,” explains Petr Láhner, Business Executive Vice President for the business stream Industry Service & Cybersecurity at TÜV Rheinland.
“One of the reasons for this is that digital systems are finding their way into more and more areas of our daily lives. Digitalization offers many advantages – but it is important that these systems and thus the people are safe from attacks.”
