On 3 December CECIP organised a webinar with key stakeholders to discuss the possible approach to ensure data security in the weighing industry. The digital transformation increases the transmission of data by weighing instruments. Since certain data is sensitive or there might be an interest to manipulate data this will require measures to secure the data transmitted. During the webinar around 90 participants listened to the speakers Bobjoseph Mathew (METAS & OIML), Paul Turner (NSAI), Ulrich Rauchschwalbe (Schenck Process) and Nick Parsons (Minebea Intec & CECIP President) presenting their view on the measures that could be taken. They all provided their ideas based on their experiences from different angles. Key topics discussed were the need for risk assessment to tackle data security and challenges when it comes to keeping legislation and standards up-to-date when it comes to technological developments. It is essential to allow for innovations, while securing the data coming from weighing instrument. After the presentations the audience had the opportunity to ask questions as well.
