About Course

The training program described below, focuses on the cyber security aspects of Industrial Control Systems (ICS), also known as Operation technology (OT). These systems are deployed in range of architectures:

  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
  • Building and Energy Management Systems (BEMS)
  • Distributed Control Systems (DCS)

The solutions include products such as: Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Remoter Terminal Units (RTU) Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) Safety Instrument Systems (SIS), Human Machine Interface (HMI), Automation Servers (AS) etc.

Among Industrial control verticals are the following:

  • Electricity production and distribution
  • Water distribution and Sewage treatment
  • Oil and gas facilities
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Smart cities and public safety
  • Communication networks, and more
