Over the last two decades, cybersecurity gaps in industrial automation and control systems (IACS) have been targeted by criminals and nation states. These bad actors exploit often outdated and sensitive systems involved in every facet of critical infrastructure and industrial processes. 

 Join the International Society of Automation (ISA), the thought-leader and developer of the world's only consensus-based industrial cybersecurity standards (ISA/IEC 62443), for a rapid-fire, elevated two-day conference event, focusing on expert discussions surrounding awareness and solutions for organizational threats/vulnerabilities with the implementation of a standards-base cybersecurity program.
