Industrial control systems (ICS) surround us in our homes and workplaces; move us in our cars, trains, and airplanes; and enrich our world through the production and transportation of electric power, food products, fossil fuels, and critical chemicals. Securing these networks is a challenging task. Unfortunately, sometimes a malicious intruder can still find a way to enter your ICS network.
SEC 203 is designed for the compliance team and management that supports it, to give students directly applicable information and to allow them to fully understand how to meet these requirements. It covers the next NERC CIP version to be enforced, with an emphasis on region-independent information, including Reliability Standard Audit Worksheets (RSAWs), data requests, and associated audit best practices.
This course is designed to give ICS technicians or engineers the tools to understand basic cybersecurity and an understanding of how ICSs interact with enterprise security. SEC 201 is also appropriate for hands-on managers who want a better understanding of their systems’ security. This course covers basic cybersecurity and ICSs, with an emphasis on the mindset of malicious actors, defensive strategies, and network security tools and techniques.
SEC 101 gives the layperson a basic understanding of ICSs and how they are used. In this course, we cover types of control systems, critical infrastructure sectors, communications basics, and protection and security for these systems, with an emphasis on electric power.
