- About Us
The increasing digitalization of industrial production plants in the context of Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT requires that managers and employees on the part of manufacturers, integrators and operators deal with security in the production environment. Industrial security is of immense importance in order to ensure the permanently secure and reliable operation of networked systems. It’s not just about technical solutions, but also about processes and people’s behaviour. Training employees and technical experts is a huge implementation task.
Our portfolio of online courses and online learning content on Industrial Security covers a wide range of topics. We cover both the basic concepts of the relevant IEC 62443 standard and specific recommendations for action, explanations of technical principles and practical examples. The portfolio also includes cybersecurity for the office environment, functional safety and topics related to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our portfolio of online learning content is the starting point for creating tailor-made training courses for your company and your employees. The content in this area was developed with more than 20 companies and institutions. Members of the Industrial Security working group in the VDMA, Fraunhofer, Siemens, Rhebo, Goethe University Frankfurt, HiSolutions and Pepperl + Fuchs, among others, share their specialist knowledge of cybersecurity in industry.
