What is a village. ICS Village is a non-profit organization with the purpose of providing education and awareness of Industrial Control System security. Connecting public, industry, media, policymakers, and others directly with ICS systems and experts. Village FAQs. Our interactive learning approach invites you to get hands on with the equipment to build your skills. We bring you real components such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), Remote Telemetry Units (RTU), actuators, to simulate a realistic environment by using commonly used components throughout different industrial sectors. You will be able to connect your machine towards the different industrial components and networks and try to assess these ICS devices with common security scanners, network sniffers to sniff the industrial traffic, and more!
