As Berlin accommodates the Government and Parliament, and as, a metropolis having complex traffic- and communication networks, it needs innovative security concepts. Where maximum safety is concerned, Berlin-Brandenburg is one of the most efficient regions in Germany as well as in Europe.
Around 27,000 employees in 250 companies within the security industry achieve a turnover of nearly 3 billion Euros. Internationally renowned companies and research institutes such as Zertificon, Verisign or the E-Security centre of the Fraunhofer-IuK-Group are located in Berlin. Increasingly smaller developers and service providers establish themselves here.
