Approximately 200 security experts work around the clock to counter cyber-attacks

One billion security-relevant data from 3,000 data sources are fully automatically analyzed every day in the Cyber Defense and Security Operation Center (SOC). Approximately 200 security experts work around the clock to counter cyber-attacks – at the Master-SOC in Bonn and in connected locations around the world. Their task is to protect the Telekom systems and those of its customers, such as Linde.


The challenge

  • Increasingly connected production environment at Linde
  • Growing data volumes are harder to manage, and at the same time,attacks are more strategically sophisticated
  • More targets for attack mean greater vulnerability
  • A need for immediate detection and defense from attacks
  • Implementation of the global security strategy at Linde
  • Availability of security experts and network expertise


The solution

  • Hybrid security model: Linde and SOC in interaction
  • Tool for Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) for constant network monitoring
  • Immediate detection of conspicuous data records, ad-hoc reaction
  • Malware library as information pool with approximately 20 million malicious codes
  • SOC provides first and second level support
