InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) established the Industrial Control Systems Joint Working Group (ICSJWG) to facilitate information sharing and reduce the risk to the nation’s industrial control systems.
The ICSJWG is a collaborative and coordinating body operating under the Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council (CIPAC) framework. The ICSJWG provides a vehicle for communicating and partnering across all Critical Infrastructure (CI) Sectors between federal agencies and departments, as well as private asset owners/operators of industrial control systems. The goal of the ICSJWG is to continue and enhance the collaborative efforts of the industrial control systems stakeholder community in securing CI by accelerating the design, development, and deployment of secure industrial control systems.
This meeting will continue to provide an ongoing forum for all control systems stakeholders to gather and exchange ideas about critical issues in ICS cybersecurity. It is intended to foster an opportunity for stakeholders to interface with peers, network with industry leaders, and stay abreast of the latest initiatives impacting security for industrial control systems and our critical infrastructure. The 2018 Spring Meeting will include three full days of interactions and discussions in the form of keynote speakers, practical demonstrations, presentations, and panels.
