Charter of Trust
At the Munich Security Conference 2018, Siemens and eight partners from industry signed the first joint charter for greater cybersecurity. Initiated by Siemens, the Charter of Trust calls for binding rules and standards to build trust in cybersecurity and further advance digitalization. Since 2018, the Charter of Trust has grown to 16 members. In addition to Siemens and the Munich Security Conference, the signatories include AES, Airbus, Allianz, Atos, Cisco, Daimler, Dell Technologies, Deutsche Telekom, IBM, NXP, SGS, Total and TÜV Süd.

In addition, the German Federal Office for Information Security, the CCN National Cryptologic Center of Spain and the Graz University of Technology in Austria have joined the charter as associate members. On February 19, 2019, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) signed a letter of intent to join the Charter of Trust for cybersecurity in Tokyo, expanding the Charter’s reach into Asia. The company’s membership is expected to be finalized by the end of September 2019. MHI will be the first Asian company to join the global cybersecurity initiative.
