Use experience and best practices in the implementation of Section 166 Para. 1 TKG

The implementation of Section 166 Paragraph 1 of the Telecommunications Act (TKG) is of central importance for companies in the telecommunications sector in order to ensure the security and integrity of their services. In this blog post, we would like to share experiences and best practices that will help you successfully implement the requirements of this law.

1. Holistic risk analysis as a starting point

Experience: The identification and assessment of risks forms the basis for every successful security concept.

Best practice: Conduct regular risk assessments to identify new threats and adapt to changing circumstances, taking into account technological, organizational and human factors.

2. Clear definition of security objectives

Experience: Unclear security objectives lead to inadequate measures and uncertainties in compliance management.

Best practice: Formulate clear and measurable security goals that are based on the results of your risk analysis. This creates transparency and enables targeted implementation.

3. State-of-the-art technological security measures

Experience: Technologies evolve rapidly and outdated security measures can have vulnerabilities.

Best practice: Invest in modern security technologies that are regularly updated. Encryption, firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDS) should be an integral part of your security architecture.

4. Continuous training and awareness raising of employees

Experience: Human error is often a major cause of security breaches.

Best practice: Implement regular training and awareness programs to sensitize employees to current threats. Training should be practical and tailored to the specific needs of your company.

5. Proactive incident response management

Experience: Security incidents are inevitable, but inadequate response time increases the extent of the damage.

Best practice: Develop a well-thought-out incident response plan. This should include clear responsibilities, escalation processes and measures to deal with security incidents. Regular simulations improve effectiveness.

6. Regular review and updating of security measures

Experience: A static security concept is not sufficient to respond to changing threats.

Best practice: Conduct regular reviews of your security measures and adapt them to new findings and developments to ensure that your protection is up to date.

Conclusion: Use experience, implement best practices

Security officer according to §166 TKG

Nach §166  Telekommunikationsgesetz besteht über die Verpflichtung zur Vorlage eines Sicherheitskonzeptes hinaus, die Verpflichtung zur Benennung eines Sicherheitsbeauftragten.

Diese Rolle kann extern beauftragt werden. Für diese Aufgabe fallen meist nur wenige Tage Aufwand im Jahr an. Schonen Sie daher Ihre internen Ressourcen, sparen Sie sich den kostenintensiven Aufbau von internem Know-how und greifen Sie stattdessen auf unsere erfahrenen Experten zu. Wir stimmen mit Ihnen gemeinsam die "erforderlichen technischen Vorkehrungen und sonstige Maßnahmen" ab, erstellen Ihr Sicherheitskonzept nach § 166 TKG und übernehmen für Sie alle Abstimmungen mit der Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA). 

Anschließend stehen wir weiterhin als Ansprechpartner für Sie und die BNetzA zur Verfügung und übernehmen die Pflege der erforderlichen Dokumentation. 

Darüber hinaus stehen wir Ihnen im Falle von Überprüfungen durch die BNetzA jederzeit als kompetenter Partner zur Verfügung.

Auf Wunsch übernehmen wir für Sie die Rolle des Sicherheitsbeauftragten im Rahmen einer Beauftragung als "Externer Sicherheitsbeauftragter nach §166 TKG".
