    Moderator Brigadier General Rudolf Peksens, US Air Force (Retired), says: "I am pleased to be hosting a distinguished panel of cybersecurity experts who are working in a hands-on capacity to help secure our critical infrastructure from cyber attack. We'll discuss President Obama's executive order for the cybersecurity protection of industrial automation and control systems and the engagement that ISA and the Automation Federation have with the White House staff and NIST personnel in developing the framework to implement this order. Join us for a lively discussion on these vital issues from panelists who aren't regularly available to those of us working in automation and controls but whose influence will be felt by us all."

    Invited Panel Members:
    Samara Moore, National Security Council, Director for Critical Infrastructure;
    Eric Cosman, Dow Chemical
    Dr. Timothy Rudolph, USAF;
    James K. Wholey, DillworthPaxson LLP

    Sneak Peek:
    1. Get a look inside the cybersecurity issue from the viewpoint of automation end-user, and see how those concerns differ from and are impacted by others working in this field -- such as attorneys and government officials
    2. Gather Insights as to how the President's executive order in support of cybersecurity for critical infrastructure will impact industrial automation and control systems globally
    3. Hear what's coming -- ready or not.
  • ICS Critical Skills

    To manage risk effectively in our industrial domains, technology, standards, policies, and practices are not enough. People are crucial! A standardized foundational set of skills, knowledge and abilities for Industrial Cybersecurity across the industry is lacking. There is a need for a standardized, vendor-neutral, certification program that provides structure and demonstrated competence. An ICS professional needs a hybrid set of experience and competencies that can be roughly divided into four domains: IT, Cybersecurity, Engineering, and Corporate/Industry standards.
  • Business Processes Are an Essential Element of Systems Security

    Industrial Network Security
    Management Executive Engineer Academia/R&D/Scientist
    Security is about much more than technology. Although it is often technology that is the focus of cybersecurity discussions we have to remember that it is the combination of people, process and technology that makes for an effective response to threats. This session focuses on the process element, describing some practical examples of processes that have been effective in various situations.

    Technician Management Engineer Academia/R&D/Scientist
    What is the basis for effective cybersecurity? How and where do you find effective and credible guidance with respect to what is considered to be acceptable industry practice? In a mature discipline much of this information comes in the form of established and validated industry standards and practices. This session provides information about current and emerging information in this area.
  • User Experience with Security Programs I
