Wired Business Media has acquired the ICS Cybersecurity Conference series. This conference series adds to the growing portfolio of innovative events under Wired Business Media's flagship publication, SecurityWeek.
The conference will cover energy, utility, chemical, transportation, manufacturing and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. Moreover it will touch on what Europe and the Middle East have planned for 2015.
There are many unintentional cyber incidents and actual cyber attacks that result in multiple deaths and hundreds of millions of dollars in damages across almost all industrial sectors worldwide. In order to address the ICS cybersecurity problems we must join the strengths of the ICS community's domain knowledge and the IT community's cybersecurity knowledge.
Michael Lennon, managing director at SecurityWeek spoke and said SecurityWeek's investment in this influential conference series ensures that the platform will serve as a catalyst for a strategic dialog to protect ICSs around the world.
"The fusion of SecurityWeek and the ICS Cybersecurity Conference series ushers in a new era of information sharing across the control system and IT communities," said Lennon. "This collective effort to defend the critical infrastructures from cyber attacks is historic."
"The IT community and ICS community are now bridging the security gap," said Joe Weiss, founder of the ICS Cybersecurity Conference. Weiss will remain heavily involved in the event series as a key member of the conference management team.
The first ICS Cybersecurity Conference produced under the SecurityWeek brand will take place in October 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia.
