In the past, the damage from hackers’attacks to the industrial control system was not emphasized because of physical isolation. However, with the evolution of attacking skills and the development of mobile devices, hackers’attacks have surpassed the past defensive measures, therefore the spirit of the conference was to make good use of long-developed cyber security skills in the field of industrial control engineering.
