IGF 2019 Pre-Event #22
The promise of safety and security in the digital world



The event that we wish to hold on Day 0 shall deal with the term "Sicherheit" and the changes that it has undertaken since our daily lifes are more and more digitalised. Since the german language does not differentiate between "Safety" and "Security", the meaning of "Sicherheit" and the promise behind it in the digital world is of special interest for the TÜV that deal with this for more than 150 years now. The question of what kind of "Sicherheit" we can have in the digital world in contrast to what it means in the analog world shall be raised in this event.
