Cybersecurity to ensure a more resilient and secure future for all.

The future of intelligence evolution and IoT cybersecurity relies on a strategic approach that integrates supply chain sustainability and security. By leveraging intelligent technologies and prioritizing standards and conformance, we can create a more resilient and secure future for all.

This important topic was the subject of the 2nd ISA OT Cybersecurity Summit held in the historic IET bulding on the banks of the River Thames in central London. The conference was followed by two days of training.

Here are a few pictures taken at the event.

The ISA's own assessment of the event was published in the June issue of InTech, the magazine of the society. "At its second-annual OT Cybersecurity Summit in London this month, ISA treated 260 attendees—a 117% increase in attendance year over year—to 34 sessions, 44 speakers and 14 technology-rich sponsor exhibits.

Attendees shared their positive feedback:
• “Cybersecurity is really a team sport, so there needs to be more ongoing collaboration between product vendors and asset owners. This event provides just the right environment for these conversations.”
• “Being part of ISA is all about knowledge sharing, community and collaboration. The collaborative community sets ISA events apart—the event doesn’t ‘end’ because we stay in touch and continue to work throughout the year to help solve some of the big challenges in cybersecurity.”
• “I love ISA events! The people are awesome—they are warm-hearted, intellectual and passionate about engineering. They are people that definitely know their stuff, but they aren’t know-it-alls, so it’s a really cool environment.”
“This is only the second year that ISA has hosted the OT Cybersecurity Summit, but already this event is recognized as the leading venue for conversations about operational technology and industrial cybersecurity,” said Claire Fallon, ISA CEO and executive director. “As developers of the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards, ISA is uniquely positioned to provide thought leadership, training and certification on these critical standards that are used the world over to ensure that industrial facilities are safe and secure.”

The event included two tracks on intelligence evolution and Internet of Things (IoT) cybersecurity, as well as an exclusive cybersecurity escape room experience designed specifically for ISA.

In addition, ISA offered its most popular training courses—Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Your Control Systems (IC32) and Assessing the Cybersecurity of New Existing IACS Systems (IC33)—as well as a workshop on the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards.

The next OT Cybersecurity Summit will take place in Brussels, Belgium, on 17-19 June 2025.
