The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) recently announced its new, complimentary webinar series. The second cybersecurity webinar in the series was entitled Cross-Training with ICS and was held from 1:00-2:00 pm ET on Thursday, June 22, 2023. The webinar was offered at no charge for all audiences.


There are many similarities between cybersecurity roles in industrial control systems (ICS) and trucking. NMFTA’s Director of Enterprise Security, Antwan Banks, moderated the “Cross-Training with ICS” webinar presented by Peninsula Truck Lines Inc.’s IT Operations Manager, Chloe Callahan.

At last Fall’s Digital Solutions Conference on Cybersecurity, the NMFTA promoted the concept of trucking IT professionals cross-training with ICS. Chloe accepted the challenge!

In this session, attendees learned the following:
· The parallels between the two subjects;
· How to prepare for taking and translating ICS topics to trucking; and
· Chloe’s experience and notes on an ICS training session she completed.

Participants left the webinar with a better understanding of how to increase their cybersecurity skills through cross-training.
