Charter of Trust: Making the digital world safer


"The Charter of Trust builds trust in the digital world today and tomorrow by enabling cybersecurity efforts and making business reliable, sustainable and secure."

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel Stepken

Chairman of the Board of Management, TÜV SÜD AG

Digitalisation has transformed the way we transact, work and live. In this world of increased connectivity, it is important to ensure the security, privacy and integrity of our data and digital infrastructures. TÜV SÜD aims to be your trusted neutral partner for Digital Trust.

The Charter of Trust (CoT) was founded in 2018 at the Munich Security Conference, initiated by Siemens with the aim to build trust in cybersecurity and advance digitalisation. Born out of a desire to protect digital technologies, the founding members signed the Charter as a demonstration of their commitment to work together to fulfil its goal of driving trust in the digitally connected world. Since inception, the Charter of Trust has grown from strength to strength, developing from 9 members to 17 members strong today.

Aligned with TÜV SÜD’s mission of inspiring trust, TÜV SÜD is proud to be a member of the charter. Through our independence, deep domain and regulatory knowhow, we aim to contribute by protecting critical systems and sensitive data, helping our customers ensure their business continuity.
