Member of the Charter of Trust
Cybersecurity is a rapidly changing battlefield that requires awareness, continuous vigilance, and a consolidated response from everyone involved. In order to make the digital world safer, it must develop in parallel with Cybersecurity.
As Siemens is in a position to lead industrial digitalization and automation, the company recognized early on that cybersecurity would be an integral part of the digital revolution. The company’s customers want advanced digitalization. But without protection against cybercrime, innovative digital solutions are at risk.
A holistic Approach
Siemens sees Cybersecurity as a highly sensitive area that demands a trustworthy partner who understands how products, systems, and solutions integrate with the processes and people behind them and how people interact with them. 35 years’ experience in the field of cybersecurity, a holistic approach which helps the company to protect its infrastructure, as well as its products, solutions and services as much as possible and 1,300 cybersecurity experts have left Siemens superbly positioned to supply its customers with state-of-the-art cybersecurity functionalities.
A strong Alliance
Yet, Siemens also realizes it can’t cover the entire field by itself. The company also has to take its responsibility for Cybersecurity well beyond the boundaries of its own organization, because approaches to cyber threats do not end there. That’s why, Siemens and a number of other global players joined forces and initiated the Charter of Trust at the Munich Security Conference in 2018 for the purpose of raising awareness levels about the threat and creating binding cybersecurity obligations. The Charter’s goal: to advocate modern and clear rules and, thus, actively structure the future of cyberspace.
