On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 the research group Safe Industry 4.0 of the Security Network Munich met for the 19th time. The meeting was led by our CEO Thomas Traegler in SF’s office in Garching near Munich.

Since 2012, Security Network Munich (Sicherheitsnetzwerk München) has been bringing together the leading players and organisations in the field of information and cyber security. As well as fostering industry cooperation through joint research and innovation projects, members meet regularly to discuss pressing industry challenges with government and research institutions. Today, the Network comprises over 100 firms and engages around 800 people through our working groups, shared projects, and events.
We also convey the industry´s insights and concerns to a political and broader societal audience, providing consulting expertise on cyber strategy to state and federal government and, through education and communication, spreading awareness of the importance of information security.
Security Network Munich is currently a network project of the Center Digitisation.Bavaria (Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern, and is jointly supported by industry members and the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology. Through extensive collaboration, it is our aim to keep Munich and Bavaria at the forefront of innovation and technological advancement. Only by dealing effectively with threats can the advantages of digitalisation be fully realised.

In the run-up of the Munich Security Conference the Security Network organizes the Munich Cyber Security Conference.
