OVERVIEW

The move to using open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and process control networks has begun to expose these systems to the same cyberattacks that have wreaked so much havoc on corporate information systems. This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments. This course will assist managers, system operators and industrial data communications specialists in setting up secure systems.

Topics covered include: introduction and terminology; electronic security; threat sources; understanding the current industrial security environment; how cyberattacks happen; creating a security program; risk analysis; addressing risk with security policy, organization, and awareness; addressing risk with selected security counter measures; addressing risk with implementation measures; monitoring and improving the CSMS.

If you are using any form of communication system, this course will give you the essential tools in securing and protecting your industrial networks whether they be automation, process control, PLC or SCADA based.

Exercises include:

  • Develop a business case for industrial security
  • Conduct security threat analysis
  • Investigate scanning and protocol analysis tools
  • Apply basic security analysis tools software

 

ISA Standards to be reviewed:

  • ANSI/ISA-62443-1-1 (ANSI/ISA-99.00.01-2007) - Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems Part 1: Terminology, Concepts & Models
  • ANSI/ISA-62443-2-1 (ANSI/ISA-99.02.01-2009)  - Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems: Establishing an Industrial Automation and Control Systems Security Program
  • ANSI/ISA-62443-3-3  - Security for industrial automation and control systems: System security requirements and security levels

This course is required for the ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist Certificate Program.

Anyone who will be designing, installing and commissioning, maintaining, securing and troubleshooting industrial networked sites will benefit, including:

  • Design engineers
  • Instrumentation engineers
  • Technicians

         

  • Electrical engineers
  • Network engineers
