The infrastructure challenge in the U.S. presents opportunities to:
- Strengthen crucial infrastructure against cyberattack.
- Replace aging infrastructure with resilient, low-carbon infrastructure that can leverage data to help mitigate climate change.
- Develop public-private partnerships that can reduce costs for taxpayers.
As proud sponsor of Infrastructure Week, Siemens joins its industry partners, customers, and allies in a reexamination of infrastructure needs and how data and digital technology to optimize infrastructure and drive competitiveness.

Infrastructure SolutionsSiemens has more than 170 years of experience building machines and systems for physical infrastructure. Now, we can leverage data and technology already in the market to make infrastructure work better than ever before for cities and for the people who live there.
Cybersecurity and the Charter of Trust
Siemens not only analyzes customer data – the company also protects it. Globally Siemens has more than 1,200 cybersecurity experts that work to continuously improving the security of its products and solutions.
But our broader view is that no one company or organization can take on the cybersecurity threat alone. This is why Siemens is now working with other companies through The Charter of Trust – a global alliance aimed at securing everything from power grids and oil rigs to factories and transportation systems in the digital age.
To underscore the importance of cybersecurity and the Charter of Trust, Siemens sponsored a thought event with Bloomberg in Washington, DC, “The Future of Cybersecurity: Risk and Resiliency Across Critical Infrastructure.” The event featured CEO Joe Kaeser and a number of major cybersecurity experts for insights and Q&A.
Siemens’ approach isn’t to come to cities with a list of products and ready-made solutions. Siemens comes to them with data. The company allows city leaders and planners to see how its infrastructure is working in real time – the entire system, not just individual parts of it.
Siemens developed an operating system, called MindSphere, which makes it easier for cities to link their complex infrastructure systems, and then organize and find the highlights in their data after it’s moved into the cloud.
City Performance Tool
This is a software platform that Siemens uses to calculate what investments in new infrastructure technologies will yield in terms of improving the environment and strengthening the economy. Many cities have set targets to reduce emissions, for instance. And with the City Performance Tool, Siemens help cities determine what it will take to achieve their targets and give them a clear roadmap for how to do it.
