Improving the cybersecurity in industrial control systems (ICS) has been a subject of focus for over a decade. Control systems and security experts have collaborated to develop improved standards and practices, and suppliers are responding with new and innovative products and technologies. Yet, the risks continue to evolve, requiring improved response and increased adoption in virtually all critical infrastructure sectors.
The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss trends and developments in this area, including but not limited to application of available standards, practices, and guidelines. Presentations by the Automation Federation and NIST will be followed by a panel discussion where attendees will be invited to offer their input and discuss their own issues or concerns.
Participation in this workshop will be of benefit to owner-operators, suppliers, and any stakeholders interested in the application of standards and practices to improving the cybersecurity of industrial control systems.
