The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has published new documents on Microsoft Windows 10 and how to secure it. I looked at the BSI security recommendations for Windows 10 before I wanted to report on them. The background to this is that in the past, publications in this direction were sometimes more than outdated when they were published or they were very superficial.
The German IT-Grundschutz forms the basis for IT security in Germany and is internationally recognised. This is a collection of recommendations that help IT systems to be protected against security threats. In this blog article, I would like to take a closer look at the origin, international acceptance and structure of the German IT-Grundschutz.
