Chip security flaws meltdown and spectre: Current assessment and recommendations.

Security gaps of an unprecedented magnitude became known at the beginning of the year. Vulnerabilities have been discovered in current Intel, AMD and ARM processors that enable secret and sensitive information to be read. The "Meltdown" and "Spectre" exploits allow potential attackers to access memory information without authorisation and to read the processed data. Billions of computer systems are now affected due to the very high prevalence of these core components.


What are the risks? What systems are affected? What measures have to be taken, especially for cloud systems  And what if there are no patches available for your system? Read the most important questions and answers with links to further information in the Bechtle Blog:

Digitalising the construction industry.

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.
