The current industrial cyber security landscape presents a very diverse and chaotic picture of the threats facing industrial control system owners and operators. Attacks that cause physical damage or impact physical processes are no longer limited to theory or speculation. We're now seeing incidents where malicious actors successfully intruded, caused system damage, and impacted operations using ICS-tailored malware. We need to be prepared to defend our control systems against increasingly sophisticated adversaries.

Now in its 15th year, the annual ICS Security Summit brings together practitioners and leading experts to share ideas, methods, and techniques for defending control system environments. In-depth presentations and interactive panel discussions deliver real-world approaches that work and make a difference for the individuals fighting 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

What attendees say about their ICS Security Summit experience

"I was impressed by the expertise of the speakers and more impressed by the quality of attendees. Both the information presented in the conference and the after-hours discussions were engaging and productive." - Doug Short, Trinity River Authority

“This summit was extremely beneficial because it gives insight into what challenges my peers are facing and how they are addressing them. It is a forum for sharing information and cultivating new ideas.” - Jeff Jones, Exelon Corporation

“The best in-depth coverage of ICS.” - Mike Smith, US DOE

Compete in Grid NetWars

Grid NetWars is a suite of hands-on, interactive learning scenarios that enable Operational Technology security professionals to develop, test and master the real-world, in-depth skills they need to defend real-time systems. Grid NetWars was designed for players at all skill levels and from any sector (not just the electric sector). Grid NetWars is offered for free for all students taking a course at this SANS ICS Summit event in Orlando (registration is still required).

Summit Networking and ICS NetWars

Network with your peers and make invaluable connections

In addition to two days of in-depth ICS security discussions and presentations, you'll have the opportunity to network with fellow attendees at breaks and social events. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest benefits of attending a SANS Summit are the many industry connections gained from networking during their time with us.
