For months we have been reading about increasingly sophisticated attacks on companies. With every new wave, we are amazed to discover that a particular virus or trojan is especially dangerous and clever. The programmer of the malware may even award himself or herself a medal if the German BSI issues a report or a news report mentions the attack.

NoSpamProxy is a must at CeBIT 2018. This year CeBIT takes place for the first time in summer, from June 12 to 15 in Hannover.

Headlines such as S/MIME and PGP hacked were not only factually incorrect, but also led some self-proclaimed experts to advise against the use email encryption in general. The fact that the problem is not S/MIME or PGP itself was completely ignored. In reality, encryption is bypassed by getting the email client to send the plain text of the email to the attacker.
As of January 1,2018, many energy suppliers have converted the solutions they use for EDI message exchange to the encrypted communication required by the EDI@Energy Directive.
