Luther and TÜV Rheinland would like to invite you to a joint event: The Internet of Things, Data Protection and 5G Security – Opportunities and Risks for Chinese Companies in Germany on 28 May 2019 in Cologne.
More and more industrial sectors are dependent on internet-based technology, whether in the global control of factories in the context of Industry 4.0, in autonomous driving or in the service offering of web-based software solutions. Due to recent enactments of the IT Security Act, the EU Directive on Network and Information Security (NIS Directive) and the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Chinese companies operating in Germany are facing great challenges when providing internet-based services, collecting or processing data, using social media tools or exchanging data with their headquarters in China. One year after GDPR entered into force, the first court decisions and administrative fines for violations have been made respectively imposed in Germany and other European countries. What could Chinese companies learn from these cases and how to act in line with the legal requirements? The current debates on Huawei’s participation in the planned 5G expansion also show how sensitive the market development can be for Chinese companies in certain sectors in Germany. In this event, Luther and TÜV Rheinland will address the problem areas of digitalization typical for Chinese companies and discuss the rules of a public tender against the background of the ongoing 5G spectrum auction and the security concerns over Huawei. Together with experienced industry experts, Luther and TÜV Rheinland also share practical and technical compliant solutions. Last but not least, all participants have the opportunity to visit the innovation space of TÜV Rheinland.
