The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the German Institute for Standardization (DIN), and the German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies of DIN and VDE (DKE), will co-host a standards panel event focused on securing future technologies, cybersecurity, and other challenges and solutions for smart manufacturing, mobility, and agriculture on April 10-11 in Washington, DC.

The digitization of products, processes, and systems, as well as the creation of innovative and new businesses, are moving at high speeds. As industries undergo digital transformation on both sides of the Atlantic, opportunities to advance competitiveness and international trade abound.

At the same time, with increasing digitization there are growing threats to infrastructure of industry. With cybercrime on the rise, cybersecurity remains a critical priority for the success of the digital economy.

Standards and conformance can provide the highest possible level of transparency, coherence, and information for business partners and customers. As cybersecurity becomes a joint task for a variety of stakeholders including policy makers, industry, manufacturers, and users, national activities in regulation, standardardizaton, and conformity assessment add an additional level of complexity.

The U.S.-German Standards Panel 2018, to take place at FHI 360 Conference Center (1825 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC), will take a closer look at these dynamics in the U.S. and Europe.

The April 10 session will be 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. The April 11 session will be 8:30 a.m. –12:00 p.m.

Panel discussions will focus on issues related to cybersecurity and privacy, blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts, with discussions in the following key topic areas:


  • Smart Manufacturing

  • Smart Mobility

  • Smart Agriculture


Attendees will broaden their networks, and identify common views for increased U.S.-German cooperation on dedicated standards activities. The U.S.-German Standards Panel is relevant to CTOs, CIOs, and CSOs of companies, associations, and standards development organizations with a transatlantic business scope.
