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.

Functional Safety Symposium
Since 1994, the "International Symposium" focusing on Functional Safety has been held every 2 years in May 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 in May 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.
Speakers and experts who are interested in participating in this event and holding a 20-30 minutes speech as well as attending a discussion session are invited to contact us.
Companies who wish to participate in the exhibition of the Symposium are also invited to contact us and ask for more information.
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.
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.
It is our aim is to pass on knowledge about the complexity of the topics "Functional Safety & Cybersecurity", as well as the requirements and interpretations of the relevant standards in a clear, concise and structured manner.
Due to long-term technical experiences in product testing and evaluation according to the defined standards, our experts and trainers are very familiar with the contents of relevant as well as further specific industry standards.
As part of our additional individual events we also provide information on innovations and updates of relevant standards and explain standard requirements, their implications for applicants and industries and are available for group or individual discussions.
