Cooperative Control Centre Berlin

In recent years, the emergency call control centres of the Berlin police and the Berlin fire brigade have been merged into a “cooperative control centre” with a common IT procedure based on a common technology platform, offering mutual technical and spatial redundancy.

By introducing a common IT procedure (emergency control system and comprehensive communication technology), the state of Berlin is pursuing the goal of increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of the two future emergency control centres, and to meet the new challenges of the growing city.

In addition, the Berlin police force will change its organisational structure and procedures and set up a central operations control and situation centre: ELZ Berlin (Einsatzleit- und Lagezentrum Berlin). It will include the following components: Operations control centre, centralisation of the telecommunications operations centres of the local divisions, the vehicle information and search office, situation centre. Furthermore, the state centre of control will be newly equipped both spatially and technically, whereby the necessary command and control system will be used by all command posts of the Berlin police. 

ThüringenCERT with Affiliated SOC

The project was aimed at supporting the client within the framework of a state-internal project (to further develop ThüringenCERT with an affiliated SOC in the state administration of the Free State of Thuringia) as a central contact point for preventive as well as reactive measures with regard to incidents relevant to security and availability.

Another component of the project was the revision and redesign of the security gateway infrastructure in connection with the procurement of a SIEM system.

KRITIS Finance and Insurance Sector Study

In order to perform its tasks for the protection of critical infrastructures effectively, the BSI depends on the most precise and up-to-date knowledge possible of the functioning and dependencies of the critical infrastructures. The economic, technological, political and regulatory conditions and particularities of the respective sectors and industries must be taken into account and possible future developments assessed.

Security Management for Central Network Operations for the BOS Digital Radio Network

Together with IABG mbH and IBM, ALDB GmbH took over the independent central operation of the BOS (security authorities and organisations) digital radio network on 1 July 2010. The criteria for a successful takeover of operations were the milestones defined in the transition plan, all of which were achieved on schedule and with high quality results, in compliance with special security requirements.

The BOS digital radio network is the world’s largest radio network based on the international TETRA standard. More than 640,000 participants are currently registered in the network.

IABG is responsible for the comprehensive security management of network operations and updates all information security concepts (technical concepts, regulations, guidelines), draws up emergency plans, coordinates emergency drills, and conducts security training.

Telecoms Emergency Plan and Major Disruption Provisions for RWE Power AG

The aim of the project was to determine the current communication needs of RWE Power AG in given crisis situations with the aim of matching these communication needs with the communication services currently available in the company. The purpose was to check whether the communication services provided by the company cover the needs of RWE Power AG for the crisis situations described, or to what extent adjustments or additions to the communication services provided are necessary.

On the part of IABG, the processes relevant to system security and the necessary communication partners were identified from the documents provided by RWE Power AG, supplemented by general requirements and best practice rules, and analysed with regard to their communication requirements.


EU Project on Disaster Risk Management for Cities and Their Inhabitants Using the Example of Monastir / Tunisia

The aim of the project was to establish a homogeneous and consistent spatial data infrastructure as a basis for sustainable urban planning and risk management. Within the framework of this EU project, together with the United Nations University Institute of Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and the city of Monastir, IABG generated a model and sustainable measures for protection against natural disasters for the city and region of Monastir.

Using remote sensing methods, relevant geoinformation was collected for the analyses of the resilience of rural and urban areas, potential risk areas were identified, and various planning and building protection measures were analysed in simulations with those responsible for urban planning in the town of Monastir. With the digital twin, important information about the vulnerability of the city and its inhabitants as well as relevant measures and perspectives for urban development could be gained through risk analyses.
