Protecting the label “Made in Germany”
Still many challenges ahead
Even though German entrepreneurs are extremely innovative when it comes to research and development, they tend to be rather negligent when it comes to protecting their ideas. Underestimating the dangers originating from market competitors and foreign intelligence services can quickly give rise to existential threats. The same holds true for an exaggerated risk appetite, e.g. if confidential business strategies become publicly known, or if large investments in product development are lost because a competitor launches the product first. These risks must be avoided. Together with ASW Bundesverband. Made for Germany.
The label "Made in Germany" stands for technological progress, highest quality standards and precision. At the same time, this strong economic label is a top-priority target for criminals.
Over 1,200 global market leaders are domiciled in Germany alone. As a consequence, the label "Made in Germany" represents an attractive target for illegal hackers and criminals, with more and more companies getting targeted by malicious groups.
