Cybersecurity is the basis for successful digitization and for innovation in all sectors, e.g. in digital production (Industry 4.0), smart energy supply, logistics and mobility, healthcare, public administration, and cloud-based services, too. The role of cybersecurity  is to protect companies and their values and to prevent damage or at least limit the impact of any potential damage. Cybersecurity encompasses measures to protect IT-based systems (hardware and software) from manipulation and thus safeguards their integrity. Furthermore, it includes concepts and processes that guarantee the confidentiality of sensitive information and the protection of the private sphere as well as the availability of functions and services. Guaranteeing integrity, confidentiality, and availability are the familiar safety objectives already pursued by traditional IT security, but achieving them has become increasingly difficult and complex with digitization and networking and the accompanying connection between the digital and physical worlds.The article that follows provides an insight into current trends and developments in the field of application-oriented cybersecurity research and makes use of selected example applications to outline challenges and potential solutions.
