Seizing the Opportunities of Digitalisation

Seizing the Opportunities of Digitalisation @ Blogtrepreneur - Flickr Inc.

Digitalisation is already having a huge impact on our industry and this trend will continue to grow in the future. Cybersecurity, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are crucial issues for our sector. We and our customers need to take them carefully into account when planning for the future. All participants in the value chain need to be sensitised to the importance of increasing resilience in the face of cyber-attacks. At the same time, the potential of AI needs to be carefully assessed to maximise opportunities this technology offers.

We therefore urge the EU institutions to work with us in the following areas:

  • make rapid progress on a Europe-wide voluntary certification mark (quality label) that shows that all reasonable protection measures against cyber-attacks have been taken;
  • advance work on standards for cybersecurity, IoT for fire and security systems and Building Information Modelling (BIM);
  • promote education programs focusing on the industrial control systems.
