The 2022 ISA CSIC Conference will focus on the growing adoption of ISA/IEC Cyber Security Standards across various industries.
This program will identify the current themes and threat landscape unfolding in various industries including energy, manufacturing, building automation, and water handling. With this broader application comes increased alignment with safety concerns. These will be addressed through expert panels discussing the work-force development opportunities for cybersecurity education, end-user case studies will highlight real-world adoption of cybersecurity standards and best practice applications to streamline processes and reduce costs, while protecting people and property from increased cyber threats.

ISA/IEC 62443 has created a robust and effective ICS cybersecurity framework that provides a great roadmap for many organizations to establish a set of prioritized objectives. Verve’s been working with industrial control systems for 30 years and have been working with dozens of organizations over the past few years trying to adapt security to new guidelines such as 62443. One of the largest challenges we have seen and addressed is how to ensure you achieve and then maintain the targets. Over the past 15 years, we have helped dozens of clients efficiently, effectively, and safely achieve their SL-Ts as well as maintain them. We’ll describe some of these learnings and how you can practically improve and maintain your security levels.

Industrial Cybersecurity Innovation Executive - OT Incident Response at Accenture
Overnight, 10 plants rapidly decelerated, and dozens more were shut down out of an abundance of caution. A threat actor is persistent in the environment and has deployed ransomware. Plants across multiple geographies are struggling to return to operations while simultaneously Incident Response (IR) teams work across both IT and OT to expel the threat actor and safely return to normal operations.
Recent public cyber events in OT show that companies often struggle
for many months to fully return to normal operations. These highly
public events create significant strain for companies as they deal with multiple priorities from dealing with regulatory obligations around data links to whether or not to pay ransoms, and returning safety to operations.
From real world examples of complex OT IR engagements and readiness exercises, this session will answer a basic question: How can we reduce these impacts through readiness and resilience? The goal? 6 months to 6 minutes...
We look forward to having you with us VIRTUALLY or IN-PERSON this October!
