About the event

Industrial Control Systems are constantly exposed to cyber threats.

With the rapid advancements in technology and connectivity, these attacks are becoming increasingly complex and difficult to detect. Cybersecurity, therefore, needs to be a top priority for companies seeking to identify new risks and increasing their resilience to the evolving threats to critical systems.

The Cyber Security for Industrial Control Systems conference will focus on identifying the latest cybersecurity challenges facing companies today and examine how these can be mitigated against by building resilient and responsive systems. You will also get exclusive insights into new techniques and technologies. Plus, the opportunity to network with some of the UK’s cybersecurity giants makes this a must-attend conference for anyone working in critical systems.
