Automation Federation
Managing Director. Former Director of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team
Marty Edwards, a globally recognized industrial control systems cybersecurity expert and speaker, serves as Managing Director of the Automation Federation. (www.automationfederation.org) The Automation Federation—an association of non-profit member organizations—is dedicated to fostering economic growth and manufacturing innovation by helping industry harness the immense capabilities and potential of automation technologies and applications. Its initiatives are focused on three key areas: industrial cybersecurity; workforce development; and member advocacy. Prior to joining the Automation Federation in mid-2017, Edwards—a 25-year industry veteran—was the longest-serving Director of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT). Under his leadership the ICS-CERT was awarded the 2013 SC Magazine Security Team of the Year award and was named as a finalist in the Community Awareness category in the 2015 Government Information Security Leadership Awards (GISLA). Edwards also served as a program manager focused on control systems security at the Idaho National Laboratory, and has held a variety of roles in the instrumentation and automation fields. Edwards holds a diploma of technology in Process Control and Industrial Automation (Magna cum Laude) from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and in 2015 received the institute’s Distinguished Alumni Award. In 2016, Edwards was recognized by FCW in its “Federal 100 Awards” as being one of the top IT professionals in the U.S. federal government. The Automation Federation was founded by the International Society of Automation (www.isa.org) in 2006. ISA is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure.
