ProtectIT Security Convention - ProSecCon.

Annual Event

Every year the "ProtectIT Security Convention - ProSecCon" takes place at the Donau Campus of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.

The one-day event in September offers representatives from industry, research and science a platform for discussion of new findings and approaches to solutions in the field of cyber security.

In addition to lectures, current research topics and results will be presented by means of posters.

ProSecCon will be held in English.


Keynote from Ekaterina Rudina, Kaspersky Lab:

Trustworthy Internet of Things: Mission Possible

Shifting the focus from security to trustworthiness, survivability, dependability, and similar concepts characterizing IIoT system behavior is one of the current trends. These concepts determine the varying sets of basic characteristics and requirements for the IIoT system such as security, safety, reliability, and others. The complicated concepts must also address the dependencies and inconsistencies of the separate aspects of IIoT system behavior.

The keynote will approach understanding the place and role of trustworthiness in ubiquitous IoT scenarios and technologies used to implement them. Will the trustworthiness replace security, safety, reliability and other concerns regarding IoT, or this is just one of the current trends and the well-recognized approaches should not change? And what does it mean to build a trustworthy IoT?

Partners / Sponsors:

We are happy to announce, that the Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern (ZD.B) is official partner of the ProtectIT Security Convention 2019. The ZD.B is a platform for research, collaboration, and entrepreneurship focussed on strengthening digital competences in Bavaria and fostering collaborations between industry and research on key topics in this area. For more information about the ZD.B please click on following link: https://zentrum-digitalisierung.bayern/

Furthermore, we are happy to announce, that ProSecCon'19 will be cosponsored by the network SeDiPeT (Secure Digital Performance Twin). The goal of the network is the development of industry 4.0-compatible hardware and software solutions both within industrial production networks ("digital factory") and between different, logically and spatially separate locations (e.g. for remote maintenance tasks). The participating companies and research institutions focus primarily on secure industrial systems for small and medium-sized manufacturing companies.
