Menoora Consulting

Die menoora Consulting GmbH mit Sitz im Süden von Stuttgart ist ein spezialisiertes Beratungsunternehmen mit den Bereichen Information Security, Offensive Security und Datenschutz.

Die Informationstechnologie hat sich in den vergangenen Jahren zu einer immer wichtigeren aber auch immer kritischeren Komponente für Unternehmen entwickelt. Das gilt für kleine Unternehmen, dem Mittelstand und natürlich auch für Großunternehmen. Bei Störungen oder Ausfall der IT gelangen Unternehmen schnell an ihre Grenzen. In der Regel bedeutet das: Schwerwiegende finanzielle Folgen für das Unternehmen.

Immer häufiger finden diese Störungen ihren Ursprung in der Industriespionage oder in der Wirtschaftskriminalität. Die Schäden gehen dabei in die Milliarden. Kein Bereich wächst so rasant wie die die Organisierte Kriminalität in der Web 2.0 Welt. Regelmäßig können Sie in den Zeitungen oder Newslettern über Cyberkriminalität (Datendiebstahl, Erpressung oder Datenmanipulationen) bei Deutschen Unternehmen lesen.

Der Kampf gegen Angriffe von außen und innen, die Einhaltung von Compliance Standards, das Funktionieren der IT-Systeme und ganz nebenbei die Reduzierung von Kosten stehen dabei ganz oben auf Ihrer ToDo Liste. Gerade in Krisenzeiten ergeben sich dabei immer neue Herausforderungen. Diesen dynamisch zu begegnen, ist unsere gemeinsame Aufgabe mit Ihnen.
