The BIG M Manufacturing Convergence in Detroit, June 9-12, 2014, is the premier event to talk about industries' greatest challenges - not the least among them, cybersecurity. Defending against incoming cyber threats and learning how to mitigate damage from hackers is a top priority for manufacturers.

The co-located ISA Cybersecurity Conference will have experts on hand to discuss the cybersecurity of operations and industrial networks. What you learn here could help you prepare so that if and when a cyber-attack occurs, it will result in a minor inconvenience instead of a costly shutdown. There are many options for learning about cybersecurity, but the ISA Cybersecurity Conference is dedicated to industrial cybersecurity and the particular set of problems faced by the manufacturing plants and processing facilities that constitute our critical infrastructure. When facing the serious large-scale challenges that cybersecurity presents, the opportunity to hear directly from governmental officials, standards laboratories and committee members, leading solutions providers, and the right industry experts – all in one place – is priceless.

While it is nearly impossible to prevent industrial cyber-attacks, you can significantly reduce your risks and vulnerabilities and minimize the consequences. ISA’s Cybersecurity Conference will shed light on what you can do to protect your industrial networks and control systems from serious, potentially devastating, damage from cyber threats. Featuring some of the world’s most acclaimed global experts in industrial cybersecurity, the ISA Cybersecurity Conference 2014 will:

  • Reveal how to detect cyber-threats and mitigate the risks and exposure to your plant systems and networks
  • Introduce proven industrial control systems security standards and practices and demonstrate how to leverage them
  • Showcase best practices utilized in various industries and highlight peer experiences and lessons learned

PLUS: Receive PDH’s for attending and a certificate of completion!

THE BIG M manufacturing convergence

THE BIG M is not only devoted to answering the big questions about the future of manufacturing. It's also focused on the entire manufacturing process - from design to production to quality to sustainability, and much more. THE BIG M is ultimately about helping you find the solutions you need here and now.

THE BIG M takes networking to a whole new level. Real working sessions provide a level of collaboration you've never experienced before - with real results. "Connection Stations" throughout the exhibit area encourage impromptu meetings. Small group networking sessions, matchmaking opportunities and social events will help you make connections and build alliances across multiple industries.

The opportunity to learn about the latest innovations that can impact your manufacturing process will be unlimited. Event highlights such as the Innovation Factories, exhibit floor "tech talks" and Q&As with industry experts in the M|Exchange allow you to gain the knowledge you need most. Innovation Factories feature live presentations of the latest technologies, showcasing smart manufacturing, modeling & simulation, digital manufacturing, advanced materials, cybersecurity and more.

ISA Cybersecurity Innovation Factory:

The ISA Cybersecurity Innovation Factory is one of four interactive demonstration areas showcasing technologies and solutions with experts on hand to answer your toughest questions. Surrounding this area are exhibit booths from participating cybersecurity vendors so that you can stop by and talk to them about their specific technology or solutions and how they relate to your application. Don't miss this opportunity get hands-on information from your colleagues who are involved every day in the fight to keep your data and plant assets safe and secure.
