It is our goal to make Bonn the cyber security capital of Europe. We create the perfect symbiosis of cyber security authorities, research institutions, and private industry and develop Bonn to become the "Davos for Cyber Security". With the annual large-scale event of the industry, the 'Cyber Security Tech Summit Europe', we provide an international platform that offers top keynotes and innovative security trends, and that facilitates the exchange of cyber security professionals among one another.

When the project 'Digital Bonn' was launched by the Mayor of Bonn Ashok-Alexander Sridharan and me, it was already clear that cyber security would play a major role. With the foundation of the Cyber Security Cluster we have now reached another milestone in this project! I am proud to make a contribution as a board member and I am confident that Bonn has the necessary power and know-how to lead the cluster to success.

Cyber Security needs specialized experts, experts, and even more experts. One of the clusters's missions is to promote the training and recruitment of academic and non-academic professionals. As the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, we can make a valuable contribution to this.

Cyber Security is the cornerstone of a successful digital future. The combination of research, teaching, politics, manufacturers, consultants, and users in the Cyber Security Cluster Bonn is unique and contributes significantly to understanding and advancing Cyber Security as a national objective. This is an essential approach, because the challenges of secure digitalization cannot be mastered by any single party alone. In German IT and consulting firms, an impressive spectrum of the necessary security, process, and industry know-how from many years of project experience is concentrated.

As a university of applied sciences we are aware of the importance of Cyber Security for science and the industry. Therefore, we actively participated in the initiation, conception, and foundation of the cluster. The close cooperation of companies, public authorities, and scientific institutions enables us to quickly identify current and future needs for teaching and research and to implement them tailored to our target group. We are convinced that we can make a meaningful contribution to a secure digital future together.
