ICS cyber security training becomes exciting

Now ICS cyber security training has become more exciting than ever. Abhisam has added an assignment module in the Industrial Cybersecurity training program, where enrolled learners take part in an exciting thriller. Background As you know this training program leads to industrial control systems security certifications that you must have, in today’s industrial automation world. Plant Owners, process licensors, utility companies, engineering design consulting companies, EPC contractors and even regulatory authorities have started insisting on plant industrial automation and control systems, as well as safety instrumented systems to be designed in such a manner as to ensure cybersecurity. Cyber attacks on plants and facilities are growing and because these control and automation systems control physical assets (cyber-physical systems), it is all the more critical to ensure that the bad guys cannot break into them and cause havoc. Many of these organizations therefore insist that engineers and specialists, including IT professionals …

ICS Security training course gets advanced module

Abhisam is pleased to announce that the popular ICS security training course, which is available as an e-course online, will now have an advanced module that can be accessed by all current learners and GOLD members. This will have many sub modules such as concepts of Kill Chains, the MITRE ATT&CK framework for ICS, Honeypots for Industrial Automation and Control systems and more. Cybersecurity is a growing concern for all companies and organizations worldwide. However not many people are aware that IT security and OT Security are two different disciplines. IT security is what is done to make business IT systems secure (think banks, credit card unions or travel portals). OT stands for Operations Technology. Hence OT security refers to those systems that are used in manufacturing plants, storage terminals and similar to control processes and keep them safe. OT systems are primarily Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS for …

This Level 2 (Samurai) workshop will be a deep dive into the new Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalization technology that will revolutionize all industrial sectors. One of the myths perpetrated by many entities (incumbent automation vendors, engineering consultants and so on), about IIoT and Digitalization in plants such as oil and gas installations, petroleum refineries, chemical manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical bulk drug or formulation plants, power generating plants, mining sites, discrete parts manufacturing, autombile parts plants and so on is that they will not be impacted much because there are already digitized. This is actually a half truth. Just having some microprocessor based instruments that show …

Abhisam Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop in Pune- May2018

Abhisam is excited to announce a Samurai Level Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop in Pune on 19th and 20th May 2018. This weekend workshop which is a Level 2 workshop will be a deep dive into the new Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalisation technology. Until now Industrial manufacturing plants such as chemical process plants, pharmaceutical plants, power plants, mining operations and so on were not very much impacted by the sweeping wave of Industrial IoT and Digitalisation that is hitting other manufacturing industries such as discrete parts manufacturing, automobile manufacturing and other kinds of discrete “widget” manufacturing. It was thought that the process industries (think an oil refinery or a large petrochemical plant) would not be affected much as they already had a lot of sophisticated control systems sucha s DCS/PLC/SCADA  systems. However due to new Digitalisation technology, it is now possible to implement very cost effective, cyber secure, …
