1. CKI Talk at University of Technology Graz

First “CKI Talk” on Cybersecurity kicked off May 27 Due to the Covid crisis TU Graz and Siemens recently decided to hold the first-of-its-kind virtual “CKI Talk” among its community instead of a physical conference in Austria. >More than ever, Andreas Kind’s Siemens keynote “Challenges of Industrial Cybersecurity - A Hack. An Art. A Science“ showed the overall relevance of the topic with regard to industrial communication/IOT. Joined by experts from both sides, interactive discussions and exchange took place among the 70 participants to whet everyone’s appetite for another session soon to come in other fields such as energy, mobility or digitalization.
