ICS/SCADA Cybersecurity

What is an ICS/SCADA Cybersecurity?

Industrial automation processes use industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems to control industrial processes locally or remotely and to monitor, gather, and process real-time data.

As the rapid growth of interconnectivity among systems continue (i.e., Internet of Things, Industrial Internet), ICS and SCADA systems are now accessible and becoming high–priority targets for hackers. Cyber criminals have already developed malware threats that can disrupt industrial Operation Technology (OT). Due to the potential impact of an attack on the physical safety of communities, employees, or customers, ICS/SCADA security is an even higher priority than traditional IT systems.

Certification Target Audience

The ICS/SCADA Cybersecurity course is a hands-on training which will enable you to learn the foundations of security and defend architectures from attacks. You will look at the concept of “thinking like a hacker” to learn techniques to defend from the types of attacks that are commonly conducted against the oil and gas IT corporate and control network.
