ICS Technical Workshop

ICS Technical Workshop

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

*New this year! Public Safety Canada will be hosting focused two-hour sessions for those unfamiliar to the complexities of ICS security. The objective of these sessions will be to educate management/senior officials in ICS security through presentations, live demos, and facilitated discussions. Registration will be limited for these sessions, and we encourage those responsible for infrastructure to attend in order to broaden their knowledge on the impacts and issues facing ICS today. Come for the ICS Forum for Management, Stay for the ICS Conference!

The one-day technical workshop (two date options available) will focus on the hands-on development of incident handler skills for Canada's critical infrastructure ICS incident handlers, and technical support staff.
