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 ISA-developed 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.

Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to sit the exam with the ISA and receive the highly regarded ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist certificate.
