Unlike other standards, which are often very extensive and expensive to implement, DIN SPEC 27076 takes a practical approach. It offers small and micro enterprises orientation, comparability and transparency. With the cyber risk check, small companies can quickly and cost-effectively obtain an overview of their current cyber security situation and implement concrete recommendations for action to minimize the most important risks.
