MM-ISAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE​

The world’s only mining focused cyber security event

November 12, 13, & 14th 2024

What is it?

The MM-ISAC annual general conference is a two-day event at the Kennedy Space Center with a member only preconference and Annual General Meeting in Florida, United States.  Hosted at the Astronaut Memorial Foundation’s conference center withing the Kennedy Space Centre Visitor’s complex, all event attendees and dinner guests will receive admission to the park, as well as time to explore the event.

The conference will be a mix of engaging presentations from experts exploring the current threats and risks facing the industry, with a view to the future of mining along with collaborative working sessions, allowing you to work with your peers to share solutions to current issues

Are your operations cyber resilient? Are you up-to-date on the latest threats and best practices, to ensure your company is protected? 

The MM-ISAC brings leading companies across the mining and metals industry together to share threat intelligence and best practices, and to navigate the challenges of engaging the company-wide team in the cyber protection and resiliency of our operations. Together we are looking at ways of ensuring the resilience  of our operations, especially as the push to increasing autonomy, remote access, IOT and cloud enabled technology continues.

Why do it alone? Cyber security should be an industry-wide effort.

Aiming to have industry wide representation we open our doors to include anyone from across the global mining and metals industry with focused on improving the cyber security and resiliency of their operations. Members of the MM-ISAC benefit the most from this is the top opportunity to work face-to-face with your peers across the industry.

You will hear thought provoking presentations with focus towards mining and metals organizations. Topics will range from incident learnings from member organization’s, threat modeling for AI, cyber security of their autonomous mining systems; how to deploy best-in-class approaches to engage the broad workforce in the protection of the company; and programs and processes to ensure the cyber resiliency of our supply chain. In addition, keynote speakers from leading companies in cyber security will advise on how we can leverage the latest intelligence and solutions and adapt them to the mining context.

Cyber security is about relationships.

MM-ISAC members need to be able to rely on each other in times of crisis and, more so, to avoid crises from occurring. Through participation in the annual event, members can develop synergies and identify opportunities to collaborate and assist each other.  To support this collaborative focus, sessions and roundtables will be in person only.

This event is in person. We need to make time to ensure our network and our knowledge base is active and advanced.
