The most comprehensive ICS security event of the year is back!

The annual ICS Security Summit brings together the industry’s top practitioners and leading experts from around the globe to share actionable ideas, methods, and techniques for safeguarding critical infrastructures.

At this year’s ICS Security Summit, you’ll have the chance to learn, connect, and share with thousands of cybersecurity professionals in attendance online and in-person*. In-depth talks and interactive panel discussions deliver proven advances and approaches that make a real difference for the individuals leading this fight every day.

The ICS Security Summit will address a wide range of topics, including:

  • Understanding what an attack against your organization will look like (deconstructing real-world ICS attacks and technical threats)
  • Live attack demonstrations & the defenses needed to stop them
  • Case studies and success stories
  • System and organizational investment opportunities that reduce attacker effects
  • Future attack vectors on ICS
  • Mitigations - Defenders, governance, and controls


A One-of-a-Kind Networking Experience

In addition to the two days of razor-focused Summit content, this event offers exclusive access to connect with your fellow ICS community, leading experts and analysts, as well as SANS instructors and staff. Over these days of in-depth talks, panels, and world-class courses, the chat workspace is a place to engage with attendees and speakers, to ask your questions, and to also share your knowledge. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest takeaways from a SANS Summit is the many industry connections they forge or deepen during their time with us.


Bundle your Summit Experience with a Course to Expand Your Information Security Expertise

After the two-day Summit, choose from a number of hands-on, immersive SANS ICS courses to help you expand your information security expertise. Courses are available in-person in Orlando, FL and also Live Online that week. SANS courses are taught by experienced practitioners who are among the best cybersecurity instructors in the world.
