BSI lists Airbus Protect as qualified APT response service provider

Airbus Protect qualified as APT response service provider

Airbus Protect passed the examination of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in July 2023 and is henceforth listed as a qualified APT response service provider.

Massive cyber attacks on companies and government institutions are becoming increasingly frequent. In the case of targeted attacks by strong adversaries, the so-called Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), the defence against ongoing or successful attacks places special demands on the service providers used in this context. That's why BSI qualification is so important.

Which service providers are really able to defend against an APT attack? 

The answer to this question can be found in the list of qualified APT response service providers compiled by the BSI. We are proud to announce that Airbus Protect has been included in it after successfully passing the examination process.

This makes us one of the few companies in Germany to meet the BSI’s strict standards for the provision of APT response services. The qualification by the BSI underlines that Airbus Protect has experts capable of providing effective emergency and crisis management even in the most sophisticated cyber attacks.

For the audit, Airbus Protect had a team of incident responders and SOC analysts.

In the first step of the audit process, Airbus Protect first had to provide complete documentation. This included descriptions of the products and services as well as explanations regarding compliance with the criteria set by the BSI. 

In a second step, a technical interview was conducted with the BSI in a meeting lasting several hours. In order to benefit from the internal cooperation and knowledge exchange between the specialist departments, a mixed team of incident responders and SOC analysts competed for Airbus Protect. Using fictitious scenarios, the team had to show that they were able to handle the situations in a professional and targeted manner. Attention was paid to the general procedure as well as to questions asked and processing of information received.
