Public Safety Canada
Industrial Control Systems Security Events

Please note that the Symposium and Technical Workshops will be postponed to a later date.

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.


Public Safety Canada's ICS Security symposium assists Canada's critical infrastructure owners and operators to better secure their most critical industrial control systems and information technology assets. The Symposium includes an ICS Forum for Management, a two-day conference, and the Technical Workshop.

Details on the next  Symposium will be posted as it becomes available.

Technical Workshops

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.

ICS Webinars

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!
