Protecting Your Way of Life: ICS Security Standards for Critical Infrastructure Protection

  • Jason Christopher
  • Wednesday, March 4th, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Critical infrastructure describes the industries that maintain our modern society: water, power, transportation, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and more. You'll often hear that these systems have their own unique security considerations and, despite the drastic impact a cybersecurity attack may have, are often less secure than "traditional IT" sectors like finance. While it is true that the industrial control systems (ICS) we rely on are vulnerable and are facing new and evolving threats, engineers are actively maturing and growing the field of ICS security. This session will explore the security standards, guidelines, and industry certifications available for engineers and IT professionals alike to tear down silos and solve the most difficult cyber risk challenge of our lifetime.
