We really appreciate the opportunity to attend these events. We are aware of many conferences, workshops, events with ICS security as a headline, some of which even claim that they are the only places where integration of safety and security are discussed! However, in our opinion, your events are the best at providing the right balance between operators, vendors, regulators and government, the right balance between sectors, and providing the right environment and format for some really useful discussion. We see these events as a valuable way to develop our understanding, and as a means to network and explore possibilities for collaboration, information sharing and benchmarking. We hope to be able to attend these future events, and to be able to contribute more as we develop our project and our ICS cyber security programme.

This was the best conference focused on Cybersecurity that I’ve been to since last year’s Cyber Senate ICS Cybersecurity conference. The material and sessions were relevant and resonated with the audience. The addition of DHS, NERC and OT speakers provided much needed context for trends in critical infrastructure security. Ayman Al-Issa’s pre-conference message was also on target. I would highly recommend future Cyber Senate events to any asset owners that want information and introduction to technologies that can assist with both compliance and risk-based defensive strategies.

“The mission of information sharing involves many stakeholders groups across the entire global community. Cyber Senate captures key thought leaders and works to share information among them and with critical communities. We see Cyber Senate as a highly valuable organization are pleased to support the good work they are doing.” ICS ISAC Chair, Chris Blask
“One of the first that really dedicates to name the risks, looking at the issues and getting on board top notch speakers- your events are must for anyone taking on defensive posture and want to manage cyber risks instead reactively running around the next exposure/threat/breach.” Peter Rus, Founder of P@ssport, a preventive cyber risk management company, sponsor of the Cyber Senate ICS Europe London edition. Passport have been preventing cyber incidents for the critical infrastructure sector since 2013
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for inviting me to the Cyber Senate, I have to say I thought it was excellent, so congratulations for putting on such a great couple of days.
I meet a lot of people in Civil Nuclear in the UK and abroad, however this was the first time I have seen them all in the same room – I think we covered some really good ground. I particularly enjoyed the safety/security discussions as this is a really challenging issue that I think needs conferences like this to talk the problem through. Also, I must congratulate you on keeping the conference going when all the power went down, I’ve seen people go into meltdown at events like this when adversity strikes but this carried on seamlessly and kept to schedule too.”

I appreciate not only what you do, but how you do it. In matters of both substance and style, you are spot on. Your leadership catalyzes positive transformation at enterprise, sector and cross sector levels. Fred Hintermeister, NERC
James led an effective and impactful conference for Europe on energy cyber security. He built a strong list of topics and presenters, and included interesting viewpoints from many countries and a diverse range of power constructs, from regulators to operators to suppliers to customers. He designed the conference brilliantly, and ran it flawlessly, a difficult thing to do with people from around the world. He is always professional, but he also knows how to encourage cooperation, and gets things done. I recommend James to anyone who wants to work with the best
Energy Executive at Capgemini, formerly of Lockheed Martin
The various topics were meaningful and I praise you for gathering the SMEs to present. It was good to hear the open dialogue and injection of questions and comments. Making in roads to IT and OT discussing their concerns at the conference should go far to opening up more avenues to collaborate. I really enjoyed the conference and wish you success in future efforts.

I have made recommendations to my security colleagues that this is one to look out for as one with better structure and content than other European conferences”
