About the Event

Are your industrial automation and control systems (IACS) protected against malicious cyberattacks? These critical infrastructures are often run on outdated operating systems that hackers are increasingly gaining access to because of poor security. In the connected world we live in, every digital device is a potential vulnerability point and it is no longer a matter of whether you will be attacked, but when.

Join the International Society of Automation (ISA) for an elevated conference, focusing on expert discussions surrounding awareness and solutions for organizational threats/vulnerabilities based on the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards. Endorsed by the United Nations and globally recognized, ISA/IEC 62443 is the world's only consensus-based series of industrial cybersecurity standards. This conference will provide you with a look into how the implementation of these standards can deliver a robust automation cybersecurity system so that you can quickly and efficiently respond to threats, while minimizing harm.

This conference will be held in Arabian Standard Time and will be have focused Middle East topics including:

As an added incentive, attendees will have free access to ISA Micro Learning Modules and will be the first to learn about additions and updates to the ISA62443 series of standards. These much-anticipated updates will be released one day before the virtual conference and there will be an additional track at the US-based event dedicated to the 62443 updates.
