The initiator: Siemens

We are shaping digitalization – through security

In the digital age, cybersecurity is a basic prerequisite if companies are going to be able to protect their critical infrastructures and sensitive data, and ensure uninterrupted business operations.

“Confidence that the security of data and networked systems is guaranteed is a key element of the digital transformation. That’s why we have to make the digital world more secure and more trustworthy. It’s high time we acted – not just individually but jointly with strong partners who are leaders in their markets. We hope more partners will join us to further strengthen our initiative.“

With our digitalization portfolio – unique in its combination of Siemens software, digital services, and MindSphere, the Cloud-based open operating system for the Internet of Things – we offer our customers a full range of digital options in our core business areas of electrification, automation, and digitalization.

Over 30 years’ experience in the field of cybersecurity and 1275 cybersecurity experts have left Siemens superbly positioned to supply its customers with products and systems that contain state-of-the-art cybersecurity functionalities.

Cybersecurity is a top priority at Siemens. Our products, systems, and services adequately protect our customers’ data and equipment according to the current state-of-the-art. Yet, we also realize we can’t cover the entire field by ourselves. That’s why, in November 2017, we took the initiative and announced that we would join partners in industry, government, and society at the Munich Security Conference (MSC) to sign a Charter of Trust, publicize it, and encourage its general adoption. As a strategic partner of the MSC, and a pioneer in industrial digitalization, we feel a responsibility to advocate modern and clear rules and, thus, actively structure the future of cyberspace.
