The importance of soft skills in consulting: What is crucial in addition to technical skills.
Professionally, we at CompliON have the most diverse backgrounds. Some team members have more classical degrees with regard to a job in IT management consulting, such as in economics and computer science. Our colleagues with a more exotic background studied e.g. history, engineering or political science. The range of our (previous) professional experience is also diverse: while some colleagues started as consultants directly after graduation, working for software manufacturers or in IT departments, others gained experience in event management, event sales, as teachers or even at the United Nations.
So what is our common denominator?
Selection of a suitable information security standard from the perspective of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)

Legal and contractual requirements are also increasingly influencing information security in one's own company. Whether KRITIS VO or cyber insurance requirements – it is often necessary to prove the implementation of an information security standard. But what is that and how do you choose the right standard? Especially as an SME?

Everyone knows that the term backup stands for data protection and that this can prevent sleepless nights. Backup and sleepless nights, how does that fit together? Well, let me tell you a short story. Everyone has been in a situation where they would rather grab a coffee before backing up their work product. Then it happens: one rash move and the freshly brewed coffee is enjoyed by the laptop rather than by you. Enjoying is the wrong expression here. The laptop is gone... You curse at your own stupidity and spend the coming time trying to somehow recover your data. That's exactly what happened to me.
