“Data sover­eig­n­ty in pro­duc­tion and auto­ma­ti­on” was the focus of the Indus­tri­al Data Space sym­po­si­um at Phoe­nix Con­tact at the end of Novem­ber. Digi­tal in NRW, the SME enab­ling cent­re, had invi­ted experts from sci­ence and busi­ness to pro­vi­de com­pa­ny rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves from East West­pha­lia-Lip­pe with insights into suc­cess sto­ries and to dis­cuss ques­ti­ons of data secu­ri­ty exchan­ge and digi­tal sover­eig­n­ty.

The agen­da also inclu­ded two pre­sen­ta­ti­ons by the Indus­tri­al Data Space Asso­cia­ti­on. Mana­ging Direc­tor Lars Nagel pre­sen­ted the idea and visi­on of Indus­tri­al Data Space, and Jörg Lang­kau, Head of Rese­arch at IDSA mem­ber com­pa­ny nicos AG, ela­bo­ra­ted on “Iden­ti­ty and secu­ri­ty in the envi­ron­ment of Indus­tri­al Data Space” in his pre­sen­ta­ti­on.
