2020 Corporate Responsibility Report

Cybersecurity

Effective July 1, 2020, we transitioned our Telekom Security unit into an independent company - Deutsche Telekom Security GmbH. This company with its many years’ experience in the Group’s internal security processes also provides our customers with the perfect security solutions along the entire value chain – from product development and applications through to secure, high-performance networks and high-security data centers.

Increasing connectivity and digitalization can also harbor risks, which is why we develop targeted measures for combating potential new security risks and preventing some threats from even arising in the first place.

We want to enhance collaboration in the area of digital defense and therefore regularly host the Cyber Security Summit together with the Munich Security Conference.

In addition, we collaborate with research institutes, industry partners, initiatives, standardization committees, public institutions, and other internet service providers on a global scale. Together, we want to fight cybercrime and improve online security. We collaborate, for example, with the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) throughout Germany and with the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) at a European level.

We also provide up-to-date information about all of our security and data protection activities on our Group website.
