The second day of the upcoming embedded world Exhibition&Conference at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre – 24 February 2016 – will be a real highlight for embedded systems specialists. This new event is concerned exclusively with the security of embedded systems technologies and how to safeguard modern communications channels. The core topic: protecting critical infrastructures. A number of leading names will be appearing on the panel – so far invitations have been accepted by
- Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Labs;
- Prof. Nikolaus Forgó, of the University of Hannover’s Institute of Legal Informatics; and
- Dr Mathias Wagner, Senior Fellow, Chief Security Technologist, NXP Semiconductors.
Under the slogan “Safe for the Future”, for the first time NürnbergMesse is launching an event in the midst of the embedded world Exhibition&Conference with brief slots for speakers and a subsequent panel discussion. The close thematic interrelation among the embedded systems industry, the Internet of Things and their visionary framework will be assured by the moderator, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Sturm, Chair of the Advisory Board for the embedded world Exhibition&Conference. The event will emphasise protecting critical infrastructures.
“At the event, we’ll be bringing the users and providers of embedded systems technologies together with policy-makers who define the framework for these technologies, and we’ll be focusing on the current trend in the industry – security for embedded systems. In the era of the Internet of Things in particular, that’s a key aspect for our target groups,” explains Benedikt Weyerer, event director for embedded world at NürnbergMesse.
“We’ve invited high-powered representatives from industry, government and research, and we already have firm acceptances from Eugene Kaspersky, CEO at Kaspersky Labs; Prof. Nikolaus Forgó, of the University of Hannover Institute of Legal Informatics; and Dr Mathias Wagner, Senior Fellow, Chief Security Technologist, NXP Semiconductors”, Weyerer added.
Each year the embedded world Exhibition & Conference in Nuremberg offers the embedded community the opportunity to obtain information about new products and innovations, enter into an exchange and to maintain and develop valuable contacts. Around 900 exhibitors are presenting state-of-the-art technology in all facets of embedded technologies, from construction elements, modules and complete systems through to operating systems and software, hard and software tools right up to services covering all aspects of embedded systems.
