Cybercrime affects us all. A video interview with Milad Aslaner, expert for cyber defence at Microsoft.
What security mistakes do companies make? How can we protect ourselves in the Internet of Things? Und what are an IT security expert thoughts on cloud computing? Prof. Dr. Marco Gercke, director at Cybercrime Research Institute, provides answers in our video interview.

While there is broad consensus in the construction industry that digitalisation is the way of the future, surprisingly little action is being taken. Large construction firms and planning offices are well on their way, but small and medium-sized firms—which make up 95 per cent of the industry—are finding it difficult to get started. Most of them are stuck deciding how best to optimise their investment while minimising risk, taking into account their specific circumstances. But taking a business digital doesn’t have to entail an enormously complex project. So how does one go about it effectively?

A vision to behold.

What is it that drives a company to success and motivates employees to give their all? A clear vision. Visions are gleaming aspirations calling out to us, sparking enthusiasm, encouraging and inspiring us. What starts out as a beacon of light in the distance eventually becomes an attainable goal within our reach. Our path is shaped by the confluence of vision and strategy—both focused on a desire to transform.
