A new security culture for Industrie 4.0

This Lecture will no longer be offered from winter semester 2018/2019

In the lecture series “A new security culture for Industrie 4.0”, experts from Engineering, Informatics, Law and Politics give insight into a topic currently highly debated called “Industrie 4.0” (Industry 4.0). This ambitious project aims for a “fourth industrial revolution”, a stronger computerization of the classical industries, for instance production and automation. It is strongly related to the notion of the Industrial Internet.

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, 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.
