Call for Presentations


Submit Your Proposal

Deadline: 12 pm CDT on Wednesday, December 23

We are now accepting proposals for the 16th annual ICS Security Summit. This virtual Summit offers speakers the opportunity to share their research and expertise with thousands of ICS practitioners from around the world. If you have something substantive, challenging, and original to share with the community, we encourage you to submit a talk proposal. Priority is given to practitioner-based case studies with real-world lessons.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 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 lessons learned performing security in OT/ICS networks
  • System and organizational investment opportunities that reduce attacker effects
  • Future attack vectors on ICS
  • Regulation & standards for ICS environments
  • Lessons learned in ICS/OT cybersecurity from asset owners and operators
  • Ensuring ICS regulation and governance contribute to security

Talks are generally 30 minutes inclusive of Q&A. However, we're interested in shorter talks and other formats.
