Agenda changes for the September ACS Conference

Aug. 31, 2010

The Conference agenda (www.realtimeacs.com) was prepared prior to the July 22 disclosure of the Stuxnet worm. As Stuxnet has had such a significant impact on ICS cyber security, the agenda has been adjusted accordingly to allow more discussion.  Stuxnet also has resulted in this conference essentially being the first cross-over conference between the ICS and DOD communities dealing with the same ICS equipment. To address the full gamut of ICS issues (unintentional as well as intentional) the following speakers have tentatively agreed to speak.

To address the full gamut of ICS issues (unintentional as well as intentional) the following speakers have tentatively agreed to speak. I believe these are some of the top ICS security experts as well as IT security researchers.  I will provide more information on the keynote speakers later.
