Functional Safety & Cybersecurity Events

Functional safety and Cybersecurity technologies as well as requirements of the relevant standards will continue to be of great importance for all automation technology industries.

More complex software and hardware in safety systems as well as digital innovations and developments offer great challenges. Safety and security competencies, developments and trends will continue to play a significant role for the smart safety/security era.

Thus, experts, managers, engineers and employees have to be prepared for the future. Their competencies as well as qualification profiles have to expand and adapt to technical developments in the professional world.

This is the future - expanding professional perspectives.

We from TÜV Rheinland offer a portfolio of events, trainings, workshops and information sessions, combining Functional Safety and Cybersecurity expertise.

Symposium „Functional Safety and Cybersecurity in Industrial Applications”

Since 1994, the "International Symposium" focusing on Functional Safety has been held every 2 years at the TÜV Rheinland headquarters in Cologne, Germany. For several years, the topic of "Cybersecurity" in the context of Functional Safety has also been included to this specialist conference.

The next Symposium will take place from Tuesday, September 24 to Wednesday, 25, 2024 in Cologne, Germany.

Experts, engineers and managers will meet to network and exchange experiences and information.

Internationally experienced experts and specialists from industry and science offer practice-oriented presentations on the latest applications and developments in the now digital automation industry.

Participants will receive impulses for discussion and an ideal opportunity for an interactive professional exchange of experience.

An exhibition will be held parallel to the symposium. Here, product manufacturers, service providers and consultants can present their service or product portfolio to interested participants.

This worldwide known symposium offers a global forum for intensive information exchange and the best opportunity to win new customers and business partners.

This symposium is aimed at project engineers engaged in safety-relevant project work, manufacturers and developers of safety-related components and systems, operators, inspectors, security experts, assessors and approval authorities from all industries.

TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety & Cybersecurity Training Program

Since 2004, we from TÜV Rheinland have been offering multi-day training courses on Functional Safety and Cybersecurity. Together with more than 25 other companies, the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety & Cybersecurity Training Program was founded.

The concept as well as the training and exam contents of this program were developed and defined in cooperation with the participating companies.

Thus, different training topics with a final examination are held for different target groups.

All trainers of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety & Cybersecurity Training Program are subject to an supplier-internal and an TÜV Rheinland qualification scheme.

Participants who meet certain requirements and pass the exam taking place at the end of each training, will receive a TÜV Rheinland certificate. This certificate is issued in different versions according to the training topics and requirements.

Workshops

In addition to the training courses, we from TÜV Rheinland offer workshops on Functional Safety and Cybersecurity for the automation industry.

The workshops are 1- to 2-day events intended for a broad target group.

Requirements for participation do not have to be met and there are no exams at the end of each workshop.

Participants can get a first but also deeper insight into the respective topic. Often, participation in a workshop also helps with the decision to take part in the more advanced and intensive training including an exam.
