Securing the IoT and Beyond

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 12, 2016 TIME: 15:30-16:30 LOCATION: CHIEMSEE


The Internet of Things forces the conversion to IPv6. Several carriers have run out of IPv4 addresses.

IPv6 is advertised as more secure and more versatile. But there are some new security risks that did not exist in IPv4. And there are some wrong perceptions as well.

After a short general introduction of IPv6 basics, the presentation will focus on new risks that did not exist in IPv4. Finally there is guidance on how to securely migrate into the IPv6 world.


Transforming a factory into a true “Smart Factory” implies fundamental changes, not only at a technical level but also in business processes and relationships with suppliers and customers. These introduce many new risks related to IT-Security, including Cyber espionage and Cyber sabotage, potentially leading to personal injury or environmental harm.

Understanding and pro-actively managing these risks requires the early involvement of all Executive Management functions, from CEO and CIO/CISO via Production / Operations to Legal and HRM. Topics to be addressed include appropriate business processes, technical architectures, data “ownership”, legal contracts, government regulations, employee data protection, awareness training, and crisis management.

Key Takeaways:

  • Which IT-Security related issues to consider in planning an Industry 4.0 transformation?
  • What roles should Executive Managers play?
  • How to get them involved?
