Reliable and safe operation of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) are considered critical for industries supporting the wellbeing on a national level. The growing convergence of those long-time separated domains, calls for a special attention and adoption of best practices. That being said, the ICS functionality can be also jeopardized internally by an incentivized individual, hence appropriate preventive measures should be taken to cover internal breaches as well.
Aimed at those who wish to develop a better understanding of the threats and solutions available for industrial control systems (ICS) cyber security, these introductory and advanced levels workshops are structured to help participants gain a better understanding, develop comparative and technical analysis and recognize attacks and implement mitigation strategies against these cyber intrusions. The proposed training is aimed to empower the competency of a wide range of position holders in the SCADA/ICS arena. Graduates of this course will master the key terms, technologies, and vector activities related to the computerized control which they operate. The training program is suitable for the following groups:
- IT personnel who need to know more on ICS SCADA risks and defense in order to assure better collaboration among these teams
- SCADA/ICS engineers involved with design, maintenance of industrial plants and manufacturing processes
- Operators dealing with control of renewable and other power technology plants, sewage plants, desalination and other chemical process plants
- A broad range of managers interested in upgrading their technical knowledge and to be able to make informed and cost-effective investment decisions
Upon completion of this program, graduates should be able to defend critical infrastructures and comprehend the mechanism behind it. Also it will better prepare them to apply for certification classes such as CISO and CISSP.
