Abstract

The purpose of the keynote is to give the audience all the keys to understand the AWS cloud and the associated value proposition regarding information security. Guillaume will first introduce AWS and it’s peculiar vision of cloud computing. He then will explain how to build resillient and secure applications on AWS while presenting the key security principles of cloud security. Guillaume will talk about self-healing systems, high-availibity, serverless,

Abstract keynote: In a context of industrial evolution, reorganization of production means, a need for industrial agility to meet increasingly unpredictable customer demand, and the transition to Industry 4.0, it is becoming important to be able to adapt production according to demand and to anticipate issues.

The Digital Twin has been designed to overcome such issues by providing a clone of the real factory on which we can perform tests and try new designs digitally. This talk will focus on the use of Digital Twin in industry and its pairing with VR and AR, and an exemple of implementation in a boiler factory.

Abstract

Cybersecurity is gaining more and more attention over the last years. In this talk we will briefly motivate and discuss important steps that companies need to take to address this topic. Our talk will address the product security lifecycle based on the OWASP Software Assurance Maturity Level. Towards the end of our talk we will shift our focus to secure coding as an important milestone of software development. We will also briefly introduce CyberSecurity Challenges – a new serious game to raise awareness of secure coding for software developers in the industry. This game has been developed at Siemens in partnership with academia, and will be offered as an hands-on event.

Abstract

Securing distributed and collaborative business processes that involve Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) devices or services in a cross-organizational context is a challenging task. It becomes even more difficult when the involved parties do not trust each other completely. This keynote presents some real-world industrial use cases where there is a need to enforce cross-organizational business processes without a trusted third party and how state-of-the-art technologies and research addresses the problem.
