Cyber security within the industrial sector is complex and unlike other sectors. The impact of OT systems failures is huge and it often takes a long time to get processes back up-to-speed. To stay ahead of cybercriminals, sharing knowledge, exchanging experiences and collaboration within the sector is very important. That is the reason why the 'Industrial Platform Cyber Security (IPCS)' was established in 2014. Since 2024, Security Delta (HSD) fullfils the role of secretary of this platform. This news was announced to the community during the HSD Cafe about OT Security on 16 May. 


IPCS is an active community of professionals who share the same goal: to strengthen the cyber security of industrial automation and control systems in order to increase the safety of our critical infrastructures. Sharing knowledge and working together is key to the community. The community consists of around 40 experts, who meet twice a year during an inspiring meeting. In addition, working groups meet frequently and have contact with each other via the platform.


IPCS targets a wide range of professionals, including engineers, IT specialists, managers and security experts involved in OT integrated with communication networks. But also to professionals responsible for the security of industrial automatisation and controle systems, such as C-level executives, managers, engineers, operators.


Community objectives:

  • Exchange of information and experiences between members within the platform
  • Sounding board for relevant topics
  • Promote the implementation of cyber security
  • Support in standards development, primarily within IEC
  • Stay up to date with the latest standards and technology
