International Society of Automation (ISA) announced its 2014 Cybersecurity Conference will be held from June 9-14 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI as a sub-conference of THE BIG M Manufacturing Convergence.

The conference will offer attendees expert insight into cybersecurity defense, including how to detect cyber threats and mitigate risks and exposure to plant systems and networks; demonstrate how to leverage proven industrial control systems security standards and practices; and highlight best practices and lessons learned through various peer experiences.

“While no one can prevent industrial cyberattacks from occurring, you can significantly reduce your risk by understanding the vulnerabilities and minimizing the consequences,” says Eric C. Cosman, a consulting engineer at Dow Chemical and a nationally recognized expert on industrial automation and control systems (IACS) security. “This valuable conference will shed light on what you can do to protect your industrial networks and control systems from serious damage from cyber threats.”
