The ICS Village is a traveling interactive experience that showcases ICS technologies and highlights the security controls that enable them to power the secure operations of chemical processing plants, pulp and paper manufacturing facilities, power generation systems, oil and gas processing, telecommunications networks and other elements of critical infrastructure. The village is designed to increase awareness and educate the public on protecting these systems and facilities. The ICS Village is also developing an engaging digital presence to broaden the reach beyond live events.
The ICS Village delivers a safe, yet realistic environment where researchers can learn to assess, enhance and defend industrial environments using real components such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), Remote Telemetry Units (RTU), actuators and miniature robotic arms to simulate a realistic environment by using components commonly found throughout different industrial sectors. Offering a customized, simulated, real-world environment for security researchers to interact with ICS devices and systems,
