Who is
Krankenhaus Spittal an der Drau?

Spittal an der Drau Hospital has been providing medical care in Upper Carinthia for almost 100 years. As a regional competence center, the focus is on local medical care - both inpatient and outpatient.

CANCOM Austria emerged from K-Businesscom (formerly Kapsch BusinessCom) at the beginning of 2024. The following case study was written before that and therefore the text was left in the original version.

Business Challenge

Hospitals require a high level of process and data security. In a joint project between the IT managers at Spittal/Drau Hospital and KBC, the need for structural changes (including in the Network and Information System Security Act (NISG)) was identified. The decision was made to switch from a reactive to a proactive security strategy with external on-site support in special IT stress situations.


With the Cyber Defense Center (CDC), KBC has its own powerful competence center for cyber security. An early warning system for IT security was established for Spittal/Drau Hospital: a comprehensive roll-out of endpoint protection to 600 clients by the hospital's IT department using the SCCM infrastructure established by KBC. This is a comprehensive endpoint detection & response solution for continuous proactive monitoring and greater visibility in the IT infrastructure thanks to log data analysis and permanent evaluation.
