Since 2002, the ICS Cyber Security Conference has gathered ICS cyber security stakeholders across various industries and attracts operations and control engineers, IT, government, vendors and academics.
Over the years, the focus of the conference has shifted from raising awareness towards sharing security event histories and discussing solutions and protection strategies.
As the longest-running cyber security-focused conference for the industrial control systems sector, the event will cater to the energy, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The ICS Cyber Security Conference will address the myriad cyber threats facing operators of ICS around the world, and will address topics covering ICSs, including protection for SCADA systems, plant control systems, engineering workstations, substation equipment, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other field control system devices.
The majority of conference attendees are control systems users, working as control engineers, in operations management or in IT. Industries represented include defense, power generation, transmission and distribution, water utilities, chemicals, oil and gas, pipelines, data centers, medical devices etc… Other attendees work for control systems vendors, security products and services companies, associations, universities and various branches of the US and foreign governments.
The number of attendees is capped and there is ample time during breaks and social events to get to know and exchange ideas with the other participants.
