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!

  • Security requirements for industrial automation and manufacturing, industrial control systems and cybersecurity, an analyst perspective | collaboration between LSEC and ARC Web, by Ulrich Seldeslachts and Thomas Menze
  • Next Generation System Current and Future Industrial Automation with Agile Security Development | Phoenix Contact, PLC Next
  • Isolation in networking, the fundamentals for a secure Industrial Automation Environment | Waterfall Security, Jesus Molina

  • Can we use Application Isolation using hardware-enforced Micro-Virtualisation for Industrial Applications? | Bromium, Ian Pratt, Co-founder and CEO

  • Day to day operational OT Cybersecurity management. Challenges from the field and operational platforms | Cyberbit SCADAShield, Johan Straten, Regional Director
