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

eco will be attending the RSA Conference in San Francisco this year as an exhibitor at the German Pavilion.

Shortly before the exhibition, the eco partner association TeleTrust in close collaboration with the German American Chamber of Commerce (GABA), Symantec and the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority is hosting a German-American Dialog in which Peter Meyer, Head of Cyber Security Services, at eco – Association of the Internet Industry, will also present the SIWECOS project.

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.

Participation is free of charge. Please register by e-mail to until 10.04.2018.
