I have been invited to give two lectures at the Fraunhofer Institute in Darmstadt, Germany on various aspects of control system cyber security. The first is scheduled for December 2nd and the second for January 6th. The lecture series is called: “A new security culture for "Industrie 4.0". According to their syllabus, experts from Engineering, Informatics, Law and Politics give insight into a topic currently highly debated in the German press: Industry 4.0.

According to their syllabus, experts from Engineering, Informatics, Law and Politics give insight into a topic currently highly debated in the German press: Industry 4.0. This ambitious project aims for nothing less than a "fourth industrial revolution", or more concretely, a stronger computerization of the classical industries, for instance production and automation industry. Such a broad and profound technological change has implications on social, juridical and political issues. Furthermore, information security becomes a central topic, as computer systems become more deeply embedded, more widely distributed and more thoroughly inter-connected. During the course of this lecture series, all these aspects will be discussed by a number of lecturers from many points of views, with a strong focus on the perspective of the industry, as the focal point of this endeavor. A panel discussion with renowned representatives from politics, industry and research will conclude the lecture.
