5 Must-Attend industrial cybersecurity trade shows and events in the next 8 months

Industrial cybersecurity tradeshows and events take place all over the world, happening year round. We’ve compiled this list of what we feel are the 9 must-attend events for leading professionals in ICS cybersecurity.

2018 year’s events will focus on a number of topics, including emerging industrial control system threat vectors, the need for collaborative IT-OT cybersecurity strategies, and the newest and most advanced methods for detecting industrial cyber attacks.

One common focus is how the digital transformation and increased connectivity to IT networks in 2018 will leave critical infrastructure more exposed to cyber threats than ever before.
