Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Your Industrial Control System (IC32M) Online

12 MODULES

  • Provides a detailed analysis of how the ISA/IEC 62443 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems.
  • Explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
  • Investigates the transition to open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in SCADA and process control networks that can expose systems to the same cyberattacks that have globally wreaked havoc on government and corporate networks.

Assessing the Cybersecurity of New or Existing IACS Systems (IC33M)

6 MODULES

  • Covers the first phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA 62443-1-1), which helps to identify and document IACS assets as well as perform a cybersecurity vulnerability and risk assessment to understand the high-risk vulnerabilities that require mitigation.
  • Provides you with the information and skills to assess the cybersecurity of a new or existing IACS and to develop a cybersecurity requirements specification (CRS) that can be used to document the cybersecurity requirements of the project.

IACS Cybersecurity Design & Implementation (IC34M)

8 MODULES

  • Covers the second phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA 62443-1-1), focusing on the activities associated with the design and implementation of IACS cybersecurity countermeasures.
  • Provides you with the skills necessary to select and implement cybersecurity countermeasures for a new or existing IACS in order to achieve the target security level assigned to each IACS zone or conduit.

IC37M Cybersecurity Operations & Maintenance (IC37M)

5 MODULES

  • Covers the third phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA/IEC 62443-1-1) and focuses on the activities associated with the ongoing operations and maintenance of IACS cybersecurity.
  • Provides you with the skills to detect and troubleshoot potential cybersecurity events and maintain the security level of an operating system throughout its lifecycle.
  • This involves network diagnostics and troubleshooting, security monitoring and incident response, and maintenance of cybersecurity countermeasures implemented in the Design & Implementation phase.
  • This phase also includes security management of change, backup and recovery procedures, and periodic cybersecurity audits.

Management of Alarm Systems (IC39M)

9 MODULES

  • Focuses on the key activities of the alarm management lifecycle provided in the ANSI/ISA18.2 standard, Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries, and the IEC version, IEC62682.
  • Helps you learn best practices for improving alarm management system performance as well as the methods necessary to solve common alarm management problems.
  • Teaches you the metrics to measure success in alarm management and the requirements of the ANSI/ISA standard on Management of Alarm Systems.
