IAS - Belgium's Leading Event in Industrial Automation Security
IAS was established for companies that are involved in industrial- based process automation and control. Due to the constant evolution of control processes and automation systems, as well as their underlying platforms on which they operate, each day new possibilities are discovered that could pose serious security risks to those systems. Further automation (smart factories, internet of things, industrial internet) has led to an increase of targeted attacks on industrial systems. For the proper functioning of business it is important to evaluate the potential risks, assess them, and take proper counter measures, and this is what we aim to cover at IAS!

The ‘digitisation of manufacturing’ connects people, devices, machines and enterprises, and includes concepts such as 'Industrial Internet', 'digital manufacturing platforms' and the 'Internet of Things' (IoT). The ConnectedFactories project establishes a structured overview of available and upcoming technological approaches and best practices. The project identifies present and future needs, as well as challenges, of the manufacturing industries. The project will explore pathways to the digital integration and interoperability of manufacturing systems and processes (“future visions”). Hence, ConnectedFactories will enhance the awareness among companies of the use of digital technologies in the manufacturing sector, but also equip them with knowledge to make informed decisions regarding technology and business model choices. It will reinforce the European manufacturing industries’ position in the international scene. Within Connected Factories LSEC leads the activities related to the cyber security risks that are involved and how to support innovation by counter measuring these risks
