Digital Bond is pleased to announce the 2nd edition of S4xJapan will be held on November 5 – 6 in Tokyo.

The event will be in the Mori Building, Roppongi Hills. The Academy Hills facilities on the 49th floor were perfect for the event last year. The room where the sessions are held have desks/power/Internet for all with a tiered seating so there isn’t a bad seat in the venue.

Thursday, November 5th will be Operations Technology Day (OTDay) where we will focus on real world examples of operating and securing critical control systems implementations.

Friday, November 6th will be the S4 Technical Sessions. You will hear the latest offensive and defensive ICS security research and technicals in technical detail.

Our goal is to have the sessions in English and half in Japan, with simultaneous translation as appropriate. You can see some of last years sessions our video site, and we will be posting the remainder over the next two months.

We also will have a social event after the Thursday sessions in the Academy Hills library. Last year it was food, drink and the Kaspersky ICS Simulation Game. We are planning something fun for this year as well.

The Call For Presentations will be released just after Golden Week, so be thinking about what research you will want to submit to be a part of the event.
