Invitation CECIP WEBINAR: Data security – 3 December


The digitalisation of the European weighing industry creates large amounts of data flowing from weighing instruments. This includes legally relevant and confidential data which requires appropriate data security measures. Consequently, this raises the question how to regulate data security as part of legal metrology. How to set the rules for data security in OIML Recommendations, WELMEC guides and legislation?

CECIP, the European weighing industry association, believes this deserves a discussion with experts approaching the issue from different angles. Therefore, CECIP organises a webinar on data security on Thursday 3 December from 14.00 to 16.00 CETwith key stakeholders. It is the next event after the successful first CECIP webinar on ‘digitalisation in legal metrology’ in June. We’re glad to present a number of high-quality speakers for this webinar to discuss the topic with us. These are:

  • Bobjoseph Mathew, Vice President OIML & Vice Director METAS
  • Paul Turner, Head of Legal Metrology NSAI
  • Nick Parsons, CECIP President & Deputy CSO Minebea Intec
  • Ulrich Rauchschwalbe, Head of Controller Development Schenck Process Europe & CECIP LMG member
