... BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security) has been included in the basic protection manual under M6.137? It explains on two pages which measures should be taken to secure and protect your company and the continuation of operations.
Proof of intellectual property (IP) and authorship can be made much more secure than the time stamp of a file in a cloud using escrow services and an independent neutral third party.
DENIC Services also offers two different escrow contracts. The so-called "escrow storage", a contract between you and DENIC Services, and a tripartite contract between you, your supplier and DENIC Services. These contracts clearly regulate all framework parameters and give all parties security.
This makes it possible to clarify with legal certainty who receives your data, when and under what circumstances. (Try that with cloud storage!)
Do you know the GeschGehG ? The German Law on the Protection of Trade Secrets. Among other things, “reasonable confidentiality measures” are quoted there. Your inventions, your trade secrets should be kept safe. Cloud storage is not the best choice for this. As a neutral third party, an escrow agent confirms the safekeeping of your data.
Furthermore, accidents caused by accidentally deleting system administrators or other participants are excluded. Once in the escrow storage, your data can no longer be accessed from the Internet. With cloud storage, the deposit always stays there and is therefore always accessible from the Internet.
You should also not neglect the issue of data protection and data storage within the EU. Especially when personal data or other sensitive data is to be secured. With most cloud storage, you don't know where your data is stored. As an escrow agent, DENIC Services guarantees data storage within the EU, for double security in two locally separate data centers.
We are serious about it: We protect your Business.
