It is the time of year when control system security practitioners, engineers, and managers gather to discuss and learn about the new challenges, practices, technologies, and trends shaping cybersecurity of automation and control systems. This year, we are celebrating our 10th Summit and have assembled a special program and post-program activities. The ICS and Summit teams have worked hard to invite speakers able to best share critical insights that can help guide your security efforts.

I was humbled last year by a discussion with an ICS end-user who conveyed to me how the Summit had become the start of their annual strategy and plan development effort. The entire team from staff to instructors are especially committed to making sure participants can apply knowledge gleaned from the summit and courses to enhance the security of their control systems. The ICS Security Summit is designed to provide ICS cybersecurity practitioners and managers the opportunity to hear from top ICS/SCADA professionals about techniques, practices, and challenges that come from the resent onset of ICS-focused attacks. We have 20+ speakers, over two days, that will share their knowledge and lessons learned. Talks will be loaded with useful ideas and information for you to then explore in more depth during your class.

I am personally looking forward to both seeing familiar faces and meeting new people in Orlando. Come join us and tap into the energy that comes from exchanging ideas, learning, and applying your knowledge.
