The ICS Village come to HOU.SEC.CON for the first time!

The ICS Village equips industry and policymakers to better defend industrial equipment through experiential awareness, education, and training. It allows defenders of any experience level to understand unique failure modes of these systems and how to better prepare and respond to the changing threat landscape.

Interactive simulated ICS environments, such as Hack the Plan(e)t and Howdy Neighbor, provide safe yet realistic environment to preserve safe, secure, and reliable operations. The ICS Village brings a compelling experience for all experience levels and types, with IT and industrial equipment.
