Digital Check-Up & Cyber Security

Whether new business models, automated processes or global information flows – the possibilities of digitalisation are present as never before. Thus, the digital transformation opens up unprecedented potential, but also brings new risks. Therefore, every company should actively and regularly address how it is positioned in the digital world. This includes both the digital maturity level and the independent review of their own cyber security.


Digitalisation is a holistic process. Disruptive technologies, new work processes and mentalities, but above all changed competition must be reconciled. This requires far-reaching changes in all areas of the company, not just IT. The most important thing is a courageous and determined management that drives digitalisation forward with regard to corporate processes, employees, and infrastructure, as well as to customers and products. In all of this, the costs must also be kept in mind.

FTI-Andersch acts as a strategic partner at the side of the management. We advise in complex corporate situations and provide hands-on support in the implementation of measures. This experience makes us the ideal partner for determining the location and risk for digitalisation.

We determine the level of digital maturity using questions tailored to SMEs. In doing so, we include managers and employees from all departments and levels. This gives us a representative cross-section of the five dimensions of digitalisation:

  • Strategy & leadership
  • Processes & operations
  • Customers & products
  • Technology
  • Organisation & culture

This results in a holistic analysis that reveals potential for improvement and enables a targeted adjustment of the digital agenda.

Digitalisation and the cyberspace not only create positive opportunities, but also new, sometimes abstract dangers. Cybercrime has long since ceased to be the sphere of activity of lone wolves and opportunistic criminals.

Our cybersecurity scoring makes these risks tangible for the management and thus creates the basis for improvements. In doing so, we are guided by established standards such as BSI-200 or ISO 2700x and reduce the sometimes very complex requirements to auditable questions. In this way, we offer a mapping to concrete threat scenarios – so that we can set targeted focal points together with you and identify the need for action.

Questions for our team

How can any weaknesses be eliminated with the help of a digital check-up?

The right questions uncover any vulnerabilities. Our digital maturity and cybersecurity scoring questionnaires are based on many years’ experience and get to the point in a very dedicated way. This allows us to formulate fitting measures for improvement. These can be strategic measures such as a digital agenda or data strategy as well as operational data solutions or AI deployment up to data-driven process optimization.

What exactly plays a role in digital maturity?

A sustainably successful digitization starts above all with the people. For this, the status quo must be considered holistically. Our digital maturity breaks this down into five dimensions, which provide a holistic but always structured analysis. Technology is an important enabler here. Essentially, however, we look at whether employees are slowed down by system and media discontinuities, whether unnecessary time is invested in data acquisition because it disappears into departmental silos or whether processes are simply insufficiently implemented.

How important is the topic of cyber security?

It is often considered an IT issue, but this is a misconception. Cyber attacks are widely documented as a central business risk and the trend is unfortunately on the rise. However, it is no longer just large corporations that are the focus of cyber criminals. We observe that medium-sized businesses are increasingly affected. Be it through targeted attacks, broadly scattered attacks with "random hits" or collateral damage through attacks on the supply chain. The consequential costs here can very quickly become very high, which is why cyber security should be considered a "chief matter".
