German-US Dialogue: Industry 4.0 & IoT Changes Security Challenges

Cyber-attacks aiming at fraud, espionage and sabotage are among the most serious threats our economies are facing today. Before the background of the coming into effect of the EU Data Protection Regulation this dialog presents European strategies and newest innovations for the security for the IoT. In particular, the effect of attacks on cross-linked devices and the defense of new attack technologies are discussed. We invite you to recognize cooperation possibilities with excellent providers of German IT security solutions.
