Industrial Control Systems Security Events
Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are the automated systems used to deliver essential services to Canadians. ICS are responsible for everything from the electrical current that powers our computers, to the water that flows through our buildings, to the traffic lights that manage our daily commute. Public Safety Canada delivers ICS Security events aimed at strengthening the resilience of these critical systems.
As COVID-19 has forced many programs to shift their delivery model, and in the interest of the well-being of our presenters and attendees, the ICS Security Symposium will be held virtually until further notice.
Additionally, in order to ensure that the content is delivered in more practical segments, the 2021 conference will be split into four, themed, mini-conferences. Through each mini-conference, participants will view focused presentations and take part in group discussions on a given theme.
Upcoming 2021 ICS Security Symposiums
- October 25, 2021: Role and Impact of ICS in Critical Infrastructure Sectors – Call for Abstracts Now Open!
- October 27, 2021: Current and Future Trends – Call for Abstracts Now Open!
Public Safety Canada's ICS Security technical workshops are focused on the development of basic incident handler skills for the ICS environment. The objective of this training is to raise awareness by giving a hands-on experience using real tools and targets. Participants will be expected to have a basic to moderate level of computer security training and proficiency within a networked environment.
Details on the next ICS Technical Workshop will be posted as it becomes available.
Public Safety Canada hosts ICS-themed webinars that bring together various experts and industry leaders to present on in-depth and timely topics related to ICS and cyber security. It allows PS to engage with stakeholders continuously throughout the year as well as provide opportunities to update the community on security topics, promote the ICS Symposium, and build relationships with experts and industry leaders. Stay tuned for our next event by joining the PS ICS mailing list!
