Dale Peterson interviews Megan Samford of Rockwell Automation in the S4x20 Green Room.

The main topic is Megan’s idea of an Incident Command System for Industrial Control Systems (ICS4ICS). While working for the State of Virginia, Megan was active with and saw first hand the benefits of having an Incident Command System ready to deal with disasters, natural and otherwise. She proposes that the ICS community develop a similar structure to deal with major cyber incidents affecting ICS. A structure where external resources can be brought to the situation in a timely and effective manner.

We also talk a bit about security and safety advances in Rockwell Automation products and how customers are or are not taking up these new capabilities.
