Orlando, FL | Mon, Mar 2 - Sun, Mar 8, 2020
Event starts in 162 Days

Deadline: Tuesday, October 15th at noon CDT

All submissions must be made via our online survey form.

The 2020 ICS Security Summit will help you get a clear vision of your ICS security. We're looking for talks that are either:

  • Nearsighted: focused on current ICS cybersecurity issues ; specific examples and/or demos of successful mitigations


  • Farsighted: focused on emerging ICS threats; strategizes for anticipating and defending against the next generation of threats

Proposed presentations should be case studies based on real-world experiences, lessons learned, and best practices, and should give attendees actionable advice they can implement immediately upon returning to their organizations. Presenters are encouraged to bring unique perspectives or unconventional approaches.

You might want to review videos of a sampling of talks from previous years' Summits to give you an idea of the style and content we're looking for.
