eurobits e.V. awards PHYSEC with the ECSO label “Cybersecurity Made in Europe”
PHYSEC GmbH recently achieved the label “Cybersecurity Made in Europe” of the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO). The label represents trustworthy cybersecurity solutions as defined by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and respecting European data protection standards.
To this date, eurobits e.V. has only awarded the label to two companies: PHYSEC GmbH from Bochum and Radar Cyber Security, headquartered in Vienna.
The eurobits e.V. writes in their press release: ” […] Physec from Bochum has developed into an internationally renowned company since its foundation and has won numerous awards for its innovative orientation in the field of security for the Internet of Things.” (**quote translated from german**)
eurobits e.V. is the European Competence Center for Security in Information Technology. Leading research institutes, established companies in the sector as well as young growth companies are integrated in an association that is unique in Europe and has a strong focus on cooperation and transfer between business and science in the field of IT security and information security.
5Gain – 5G infrastructures for cellular energy systems using artificial intelligence
PHYSEC is part of the BMWi-funded project »5Gain – 5G infrastructures for cellular energy systems using artificial intelligence« with the purpose of developing and assessing 5G-based communication for the distributed control of cellular energy systems.
Due to the expansion of decentralized, renewable energy sources as well as controllable loads and storage, the control of energy systems is becoming increasingly complex. One solution approach is to divide the energy network into cells. Within these cells, a decentralized, autonomous load and feed-in management is carried out.
The project is intended to optimise the regional extraction and production behaviour by means of machine learning methods. In this context, the development of billing procedures should be made possible through the use of smart contracts.
Based on high requirements for speed, scalability and reliability, 5G networks meet the requirements of a highly mobile and fully networked society. The research project is therefore based on additional services that are only possible with 5G networks. This includes the data-rate intensive and automated remote maintenance of distributed infrastructures using drones.
PHYSEC is working on the development of a security architecture for the secure connection of network information via LPWAN (5G, NB-IoT..). Furthermore, we are responsible for the cyber-physical condition monitoring (integrity) of the distributed infrastructures.

PHYSEC among the Top 10 Start-ups in Germany
We have been honoured by the business magazine BILANZ as one of the top 10 start-ups in Germany. The “Start me up!” competition, in which we were able to present our technology to a jury of experts, took place in Berlin at the beginning of July.
Since 2016, the business magazine BILANZ has annually organized the start-up competition with Germany’s most innovative young companies. Further information on the winners will be available in the next issue of BILANZ.
