Cyber Security


Cybersecurity is an important success factor for the acceptance of digitization in mechanical engineering and plant construction. The exchange of experiences shows the approach of cyber resilience and practical examples of how cybersecurity can be successfully implemented in a company.

Networking and digitization in manufacturing and in technical production systems lead to new departures from industrial IT systems. As a result, in addition to operational safety, the safety of data and its availability and integrity are becoming the focus of attention. Cyber resilience is a suitable approach for industry to ensure the security of industrial plants. Cyber resilience describes the ability to keep damage as low as possible during or after a cyber attack and to return to normal operating mode as quickly as possible. Companies with high cyber resilience know what to do in the event of an attack. This is primarily not about the latest technologies, but about organizational readiness or the ability to act quickly and purposefully. Steffen Zimmermann (VDMA Competence Center Industrial Security) will show you how to implement cyber resilience in your company.

After a second presentation on Industrial Security by Herbert Kunzmann (Accenture Security), the demo tour through the Essen Industry X.0 Innovation Center will show practical examples on the topic of Industry 4.0 and Cyber Security. Finally, Helmut Neumann will describe how he, as CISO, is responsible for security management at Phönix Contact GmbH & Co. KG will be.

The event is offered by ProduktionNRW. ProduktionNRW is the competence network for mechanical engineering and production technology in North Rhine-Westphalia and is organised by the VDMA NRW. ProduktionNRW sees itself as a platform for networking, informing and marketing companies, institutions and networks among themselves and along the value chain.
