Jungheinrich welcomes cyber security expert Karsten Zimmer to the keynote sessions of the “Jungheinrich Virtual Tradeshow“


Jungheinrich draws an extremely positive balance of the first day of its virtual trade fair. Following the cancellation of LogiMAT, visitors here have the opportunity to discover Jungheinrich’s solutions for intralogistics as if they were at a real trade fair. Many customers and interested parties have already made use of this opportunity today and visited Jungheinrich’s online exhibition on the first day. The virtual tradeshow is live and running across three time zones until March 12, 2020.

As a highlight for the second day of the fair, Jungheinrich succeeded in winning over data security and IT forensics specialist Karsten Zimmer as keynote speaker. On Wednesday, Zimmer will speak live about the topic of cyber-security for the warehouse in the 21st century.

“We are very pleased that Karsten Zimmer has decided to participate in our virtual fair to discuss such an important topic of the intralogistics industry. We thank him for his contribution and look forward to his presentation,” says Christian Erlach, Jungheinrich Board Member for Marketing and Sales.

Cyber-attacks pose a serious threat to warehouses. Karsten Zimmer will provide exclusive insights into the threats companies face, while demonstrating how they can effectively counter the risks of the increasingly intelligent attacks.

In addition, he will examine the use case of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in taking over simple and routine tasks within the warehouse, but also how cyber criminals are able to use it for their own purposes. Zimmer believes that a real AI war will break out in the near future. On one side are the AI solutions that prevent cyber-attacks. On the other is the “dark side of AI”.
