Leonardo, Siemens sign deal to create cybersecurity platform

ROME (Reuters) - Leonardo and Siemens on Thursday said they signed a memorandum of understanding to offer cybersecurity solutions for infrastructure in the energy, oil and gas and industrial sectors.

"The main area of intervention will concern the resilience against accidents and cyber attacks to automation and connectivity systems that monitor and supervise assets, equipment and processes of critical infrastructures," they said in a joint statement.

The Italian aerospace group and German technology company will aim to offer "complete protection" from threats on infrastructure, which could have serious impact on "essential" public services.

"Leonardo and Siemens can create new synergies based on complementary technologies and skills," Leonardo CEO Alessandro Profumo said.
