The IT Baseline Protection Profile for control centers is now available for use in verinice ( as of version 1.22). The Baseline Protection Profile is published by the Fachverband Leitstellen e.V. – in German only – and can now be directly integrated into verinice. It is available free of charge via the verinice.SHOP.
The IT Baseline Protection Profile for Control Centers helps users to install an information security process in a control center and to adapt it to the corresponding requirements. The Baseline Protection Profiles are intended by the BSI as a template for information security: with their help, users who have similar security requirements should use the template to "check the level of security in a resource-saving way or start to set up an information security management system (ISMS) according to IT Baseline Protection." (see BSI-Infoseite zu IT-Grundschutz-Profilen, German only).
The target group for this profile is primarily the decision-makers responsible for information technology in the area of control centers. It is also intended to serve as a guideline for information security concepts in control centers for manufacturers of control center technology and specialist planners commissioned with the technical planning of control centers. But other interested parties can also apply the sample scenario to their individual framework conditions.
The "IT Baseline Protection Profile for Control Centers for verinice" contains two sample organizations based on the IT Baseline Protection Kopendium in Edition 2020 as well as in Edition 2021. The updated version was created by the verinice.TEAM and can be used optionally - depending on which edition users are working with. By importing the corresponding file into verinice, an information network with modeled target objects according to the IT Baseline Protection Profile is then available for further use and individual adaptation.
The original IT Baseline Protection Profile for control centers can be downloaded as PDF from the BSI (German only).
