About the workshop and conference

Cyber security is a progressively complex and challenging topic. With no shortage of incidents from criminals, hackers and nation-states, it is becoming increasingly important for industries to increase their cyber awareness and resilience to ensure that their knowledge and systems match the advanced tactics employed by cyber criminals.

The Cyber Security for Industrial Control Systems workshop and conference has been specifically designed to address the key cyber security issues identified by people working in industrial control and SCADA Systems.

The event will show how the latest research and practical solutions currently in commercial use can:

  • Give insights into how the new technologies could provide practical applications for your business
  • Show how companies from different industries are using these innovative methods to solve business issues
  • Provide learning opportunities with hands-on workshops to benefit from best practice experience

Chairman's welcome

Mike StJohn Green (photo) "I look forward to welcoming you to the IET's cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems Conference on 8 February 2018.

"It will be held in the IET's splendid Savoy Place facilities in London. We have some great keynotes that will talk about the nature of the threat, industry's perspective, the view from the regulator and a look forward to Industry 4.0 and the potential impact of machine-learning.

"On 7 February, the previous day, we are holding a day of workshops in which delegates can drill down into more detail on some specific topics. There has never been a more important time for us to be looking at making Industrial Control Systems safe and secure. This is a rapidly changing environment making this conference timely and valuable."

See you there!

"I found the diversity in the topics presented excellent. The speakers often went to the right level to appeal to the mixed audience and encouraged participants to think about Cyber Security in different ways."

"For anyone involved with control systems design - I think this event is a must."

"I have already recommended the event to colleagues and will hopefully find myself able to attend future events."

"I would recommend it as it is an informative and interesting event. I enjoyed the variety of speakers on multiple topics and different viewpoints."
