IT Security Act & KRITIS
The IT Security Act (IT-SiG) came into force on 25 July 2015. It aims to achieve a significant improvement in the security of information technology systems (IT security) in Germany. Special significance is attached to Critical Infrastructures (KRITIS), which are central to the functioning of the public community. The sectors and branches of Critical Infrastructures are defined by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and currently comprise nine sectors. With the expected IT-SiG 2.0, the scope is to be extended to other KRITIS sectors.
