BMWi German Delegation on Cybertechnology and Security Cyber Security, November 2016

During our stay in Washington and Pittsburgh from 11 to November 21 we have collected many valuable information and impressions.
About 11 companies of the German cybertechnology and security industry took part in the business trip to Washington and Pittsburgh to meet potential partners.
The start was a one-day symposium. During the next days, we have met many companies and could make many contacts.
We could present our app to the Password Guru Professor Lujo Bauer. We are looking forward to the detailed feedback.
Pittsburgh as the Secret Capital of Cyber and Internet security on the US East coast was worth the trip. The visits at the CyLAB (NSA) at Carnegie Mellon University and the Cyber Forensics Training Alliance were very interesting.
Very impressive was the inspiring presentation of the work of the UPCM Information Security team and the problems it is faced with.
Additional we made our first experiences with the app UBER. We are eager to see when the first taxis will really become driverless in Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to visit the NSA in Fort Meade.
Instead we were given the possibility to meet representatives of the Computer Security Division of NIST.
