This event has been tagged as follows:
Supervise Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that comprises computers for high-ranking process supervision management, Networked Data Communications, GUI, and other peripheral devices, such as PLCs, and discrete proportional-integrate (PID) controllers, to interfaced with the process plan. The application of SCADA was also studied in the field of project-driven construction management and operations. The Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Conference of SecurityWeek is the largest and oldest running cyber security event series. Since 2002, ICS cyber security stakeholders from many industry sectors have been included in the conference and are attractive to IT, government, vendor, or academic operational and control engineers. For those working in this space, we’d highly recommend attending and learning more about this organization.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Saturday, July 31st 2021, or created by us.
SecurityWeek’s Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference is the largest and longest-running event series focused on industrial cybersecurity. Since 2002, the 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.
The conference series now includes two editions, the flagship U.S. event which takes place each October, and a Singapore/APAC event that takes place each April.
As the original cybersecurity conference for the industrial control systems sector, the events cater to the energy, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing, and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
Our events 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, cybersecurity professionals, in operations management or in IT. Industries represented include defense, power generation, transmission and distribution, water utilities, chemicals, oil and gas, pipelines, transportation, 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.
