Who?
This workshop is for industry representatives from advanced manufacturing and smart energy, technology providers, standardizers and policy makers. Participants will provide practical recommendations to meet industry’s needs.

Why?
Cybersecurity is linked with threats, attack, crime and damage. This ‘noise’ makes it hard to discern the real issues, understand the key challenges and therefore to devise appropriate solutions.

Cybersecurity is becoming relevant to all industry sectors not just the ‘natively digital’, but also traditional industries as they digitally transform their processes, systems and supply chains.  While this shift opens up opportunities, it also creates threats to operational safety, robustness and resilience.
CEN and CENELEC will engage industry to define their standardization needs for functional safety and digital protection of their processes, systems and data.

What?
Contribute to an interactive day with key note speakers, expert panels and dynamic audience participation.
Your contribution will:

    • Identify the functional safety and digital protection issues of industry for sensitive processes, systems, information and people.
    • Confirm critical challenges facing industry, taking into account existing standardization responses
    • Establish the standardization needs for the advanced manufacturing and smart energy sectors
    • Define the  key elements for the CEN – CENELEC standardization roadmap for functional safety and cybersecurity
