We are excited to be a part of the ICS Security Summit & Training again this year. Please come out and see us if you are in the area. The current industrial cyber security landscape presents a very diverse and chaotic picture of the threats facing industrial control system owners and operators. Attacks that cause physical damage or impact physical processes are no longer limited to theory or speculation. We’re now seeing incidents where malicious actors successfully intruded, caused system damage, and impacted operations using ICS-tailored malware. We need to be prepared to defend our control systems against increasingly sophisticated adversaries.
Now in its 15th year, the annual ICS Security Summit brings together practitioners and leading experts to share ideas, methods, and techniques for defending control system environments. In-depth presentations and interactive panel discussions deliver real-world approaches that work and make a difference for the individuals fighting this fight every day.Details
