DEKRA: your cybersecurity expert

Cybersecurity solutions for products and systems

In today's digital age, cybersecurity has become a critical concern. Security is paramount, not just offline but online as well. With frequent reports of hackers breaching networks and causing significant damage, it's natural to prioritize the protection of your connected products against cyberattacks. Moreover, enhancing your organization's trustworthiness is essential. DEKRA's team of cybersecurity experts is dedicated to assisting you in achieving certifications and seals of approval. These credentials demonstrate that your products and systems have undergone rigorous independent testing and certification, offering peace of mind to both you and your users.

DEKRA's team of cybersecurity specialists provides comprehensive certification services for an array of products and systems. Our expertise extends to conducting thorough cybersecurity assessments for charging stations, electric vehicles, lighting solutions, medical devices and more. Additionally, we offer certification according to the "Keurmerk Pentesten" standard. Certified organizations perform penetration tests, or "pen tests," aiming to breach their clients' networks in order to evaluate and enhance their cybersecurity defenses, ensuring robust protection against digital threats.

Risk analysis for insight

Many organizations may not fully grasp the extent of risks posed by cyberattacks. To bridge this gap, DEKRA strongly recommends conducting a comprehensive risk analysis. This crucial step involves delving into key questions to evaluate your cybersecurity posture: How robust is your current cybersecurity framework? What financial repercussions could you face in the event of a breach? And importantly, how would such an incident impact your brand's reputation? By addressing these questions, organizations can better understand their vulnerabilities and implement stronger defenses against cyber threats.
DEKRA Audit is happy to assist you in performing a risk analysis​. Based on this assessment, you can make a well-considered decision about the design of your cybersecurity measures.

Future-proof products and services

While it's true that absolute certainty against cyber threats can never be guaranteed, obtaining the right certifications positions your organization at the forefront of cyber resistance. These certifications are not just badges of honor; they are tangible evidence that you've taken extensive measures to fortify your defenses against hackers. In an era where cybersecurity is of paramount importance, proactively securing your organization and its offerings ensures you're not just prepared for what lies ahead but also delivering products and services that are resilient in the face of future challenges. Equip your business with the armor it needs to thrive in a digital landscape where security is not just valued but expected.

    NIS and NIS2: cybersecurity of network and information systems

    NIS and NIS2 set requirements for the cybersecurity of information and IT systems. NIS stands for network and information systems. This legislation covers companies providing 'essential services', such as healthcare facilities and telecoms and energy companies. The original guideline dates back to 2016. With the entry into force of NIS2 in 2023, more companies will be designated as providers of essential services. These include food manufacturers, postal and courier companies and government departments. In addition, companies should identify and address cybersecurity risks in supplier relationships and the supply chain. Finally, requirements on the security measures to be applied have been tightened.
    Organizations covered by NIS or NIS2 must identify and address cybersecurity risks in supplier relationships and the supply chain. In addition, they must take security measures, which have been tightened since 2023.

    ISO 27001

    To comply with the NIS directive, you can use the ISO 27001 standard. It allows you to shape your information security management system in a structured way. DEKRA Audit is happy to certify you against ISO 27001.
