Critical Infrastructure Security


This training is focused on providing guidelines for establishing secure industrial control systems (ICS). SCADA, DCS, various control system configurations such as PLC, etc., are commonly found in ICS sectors. Safety and reliability are the two important factors to ensure secure operations of an ICS system. To properly address these two factors along with ‘security’ as the key functional element, ‘Critical Infrastructure Security’ course was developed as it is essential to know the threats possessed to an ICS environment and how to evaluate and mitigate risks to the ICS.
