This one day introductory course provides valuable insight into the weaknesses and vulnerabilities within common Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) environments. We will discuss infamous and more recent critical infrastructure cyber-attack case studies and the vital lessons learnt. Identify systems that are discoverable and understand suitable countermeasures, threats and ICS technical controls.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at operational / engineering teams, IT staff and security practitioners working in public and private sectors who are looking to gain and insight and awareness of the security vulnerability exposure and defensive countermeasures for industrial control systems.

There are no prerequisites for this course, however, participants are expected to have a basic understanding of computers and the internet.
