The two-day symposium aims at assisting Canada's critical infrastructure owners and operators to better secure their most critical industrial control systems and information technology assets. Industry experts along with representatives from the Government of Canada will provide briefs on the latest threats and steps that can be taken to increase the security of industrial control systems.

The one-day technical workshop (two date options available) will focus on the hands-on development of incident handler skills for industrial control systems security professionals.
