OSIsoft is proud to announce that for the second year running, we are sponsoring the Capture The Flag, CTF, competition at the annual Digital Bond S4x17 ICS Security Conference. Hunting flags with our subject matter experts on hand provides a unique deep-dive into PI System Security.  Those with PI System skills have a jump start on winning the grand prize, an S4 Black Ticket, free entry for a lifetime for the S4 event in Miami Beach.


The S4x17 conference will take place in Miami Beach, January 10-12, 2017.  The three-day event brings together the top researchers, thought leaders and influencers in the industrial control system (ICS) community to discuss advance topics in cyber security and operations technology.
