Industrial Control System and SCADA Cybersecurity Training

Industrial Control System and SCADA Cybersecurity training is designed by TONEX in order to teach you the fundamentals of cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems (ICS) including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

Industrial Control System

What is the Difference between ICS and SCADA?

SCADA generally refers to a control system that can span a large geographic area, such as transmission system in power grids or gas pipelines in gas systems. SCADA is a subset of Industrial Control Systems (ICS), however both terms can be used together. If it is referred to industrial automation of all types, ICS is a more general term to use.

What Are the Main Drawbacks of ICS and SCADA Systems?

ICS has transformed from isolated systems to open architectures and application of network technologies especially internet to communicate between modules. Most ICS products are using embedded system platforms which has reduced the cost, made the application easier and has enabled the remote control and monitoring from various locations. However, one should consider the main important drawback of these system is the increased vulnerability and network attacks.

Industrial Control System and SCADA Cybersecurity training is a comprehensive course which helps you to understand the different types of vulnerabilities and attacks to ICS and SCADA systems, learn the main approaches to identify these types of attacks, and gives you a clear idea about managing these types of risks and secure your ICS and SCADA from any type of cybersecurity threat.

Industrial Control System (ICS) and SCADA Cybersecurity training covers a variety of topics in ICS and SCADA cybersecurity such as: fundamentals of ICS and SCADA, ICS and SCADA vulnerabilities, risk management basics, selecting and implementing controls for ICS security, ICS/SCADA network and device security, SCADA security program development, and wireless security applied to SCADA systems.

Our instructors at TONEX will teach you the fundamentals of ISC and SCADA systems, role of real time operating systems, the difference between SCADA and distributed control systems (DCS), ICS and SCADA networks, and communications in SCADA systems.

Learn about risk management techniques in ICS and SCADA, approaches to assess the risk, concept of physical security in SCADA systems, different types of threats to ICS and SCADA networks and mobile devices, protect the ICS/SCAD network from attacks and secure the SCADA/ICS mobile devices.

By taking Industrial Control System (ICS) and SCADA Cybersecurity, you will be able to differentiate different operating systems applied to ICS/SCADA, security of wireless system in SCADA and ICS and apply these approaches to your real world ICS/SCADA systems.

This course also includes hands on, workshops and simulation case studies of protection against different types of attacks in SCADA/ICS, in order to give you a clear idea about protection of your organization and prepare you to tackle the real-world security problems on ICS/SCADA.
