BSI IT-Grundschutz


Cybersecurity and threat prevention provisions must be laid in the foundation of any IT project from the onset. Inducing security “by design” becomes a challenge for every IT company in the Digital Age.

Establishing Information Security Management System (ISMS) as a framework aimed to ensure critical availability and resilience of your resources and operations is the first step on the way to your organization’s security transformation.


The modernized BSI IT-Grundschutz presents an Information Security framework for creating adequate protection of all types of information. This comprehensive guide covers all security aspects: technical, organizational, infrastructural, and human.

The Infopulse Standards Compliance Manager (SCM) provides a clear-mapped and easy-to-run path to set up ISMS based on BSI IT-Grundschutz guidelines.

SCM enables organizations to embed security provisions into their projects from the ground level.  As a GRC platform, SCM supports managing compliances with multiple pre-integrated or user-defined standards including BSI IT-Grundschutz.

GSTOOL Alternative

BSI developed GSTOOL software for experienced users of the IT-Grundschutz Manual (“GS” in GSTOOL stands for “Grundschutz”). BSI GSTOOL enables organizations to optimize the internal processes, improve IT operations, and increase the security level in the most efficient way. Due to a lack of business profitability, the further development of the GSTOOL was stopped.

Apart from its official GSTOOL, BSI licenses third-party vendor solutions to work with the IT-Grundschutz Manual. The SCM is listed at BSI Group official website as a trustworthy alternative to BSI GSTOOL. The organizations with experience of using the BSI GSTOOL will appreciate SCM features and extended functionality.
