Learn all about ICS Cyber Security & Get Certified!
Take this this easy Abhisam online software based training (e-learning) course now and learn all about ensuring Industrial Control System security, SCADA security and Safety Instrumented System security.
Industrial Control Systems, referred to as ICS for short, include control systems such as DCS, PLC, SCADA systems as well as Safety Systems like SIS and others. They are the crucial systems that control plants and keep them safe. Manufacturing plants, as well as critical infrastructure (such as the Electrical Grid, pipelines, power generation , water distribution other utilities).
ICS network and control systems also include Buildings control system, Transportation related control system ( for example Railway signaling systems, ship control systems and so on) as well as Defense related installations.
Today the biggest threats facing a control system is from the cyber domain. Typically many manufacturing plants and critical infrastructure that exists today was built many years ago. At that time a typical control system was not built for resilience against malicious attacks and even today many of these ICS environments, use older operating systems for their Human Machine interface (Operator and Engineering stations). The Many times the Industrial Control System in an older plant, may run on a very old operating system, which may be difficult to upgrade and patch.
When malicious entities target and attack your control system then you may not only
Lose your Intellectual Property (stealing batch recipes, setpoints, process data, production figures, yield ratios) that are stored in the ICS environments.
Put your Assets at risk (the breached Industrial Control systems may execute unwanted actions that can cause fires, explosions and environmental damage)
- Damage your organization's reputation and market capitalization
Run afoul of the law
You may need to prepare an incident response protocol that will take these above into account.
Most companies have realized this and seek to employ only those individuals who undergo security training and are qualified in this important subject. The fastest way of learning this AND getting certified is by accessing this real world training course.
Note: Merely reading standards like IEC 62443 will not prepare you for the task of ensuring ICS Security, you need to understand and know many concepts, aspects and techniques. Companies have realized that negligence (or ignorance), in respect of ICS security can be really disastrous, literally. They have started hiring these cybersecurity professionals who are trained in ICS security and this is an excellent opportunity to boost your career.
