PHYSEC erhält ECSO-Label “Cybersecurity Made in Europe”

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**)

Dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic

Dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic

Dear partners,

We take the present situation very seriously and would like
to inform you about the measures we have implemented and
their effects:

Accessibility and Workflow Management:
All colleagues from PHYSEC are equipped with notebooks and
working in home office. All phone numbers are redirected to
the mobile phone numbers of the team. Please don't be
surprised if a call is coming in from a mobile phone number.

Personal Contacts and Business Trips:
All visits, lectures, workshops and meetings were postponed
or replaced by video conferences. We have had good to very
good experiences with the various conference tools so far
and are looking forward to staying in touch with you.

Projects and Product Development:
Our engineers are not restricted in their work by the
transition to home office. Of course, we have adapted the
tools and processes used. We are highly motivated and
fully committed to both project implementation and
cutting-edge research.

We wish you to overcome the pandemic as well as possible
and hope that the measures taken will improve the
situation in the short and medium term.

Stay Healthy! Stay Secure!


Research project 5GAIN

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

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.
