Best SCADA ICS Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

Managing Workflow Conference

Owing to its’ sensitive nature, SCADA (Industrial Control Systems) is regularly in the news. This niche-specific category in Cybersecurity is at the core of any functioning economy: (for example) if you hack the Power Grid you knock out the economy. Cyberwarfare offensive operations target SCADA and ICS Systems, and my suggestions for conferences to attend are annual events that I hope you’ll learn more about your chosen industry.

I’m seeing more SCADA and ICS events coming online every year; and that’s no wonder when you look at the perilous state of some critical assets.

This recommended “best of” list is in constant flux as we add new and notable events and conferences so stay tuned! Typically I’ll filter out the notable SCADA events that are submitted to our directory.

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended activities for the next year; usually, this is determined by conferences submitted to our directory.

If you work in this vital area, I highly urge you to attend these events. You must attend any of these activities.
