Smart Grid Cybersecurity Training By TONEX

Smart Grid Cybersecurity training course will teach you the fundamentals of cybersecurity in smart grids, detailed information about modern power systems, recent technologies toward the smart grids, potential threats and vulnerabilities in smart grids and security assessment in smart grids in order to advance the knowledge of audience about the cybersecurity in smart grids. Upon the completion of the training, you will learn how to prevent the threats at the first hand. Moreover, you will be trained to identify the potential threats in smart grids, how to detect the threats in smart grid components such as SCADA systems, customer side, transmission and distribution levels.


Our instructors at TONEX will teach you modern transmission and distribution system reliability and efficiency, how the generation plants can be faced with threats and necessity of secure electricity infrastructure. By taking this course, you will learn the digital information technology and control which will result in a high efficiency smart grid technology. Moreover, the cybersecurity problem will be formulated in smart grids and communication issues will be introduced. After introducing the threats, a proper action should be designed in response to a threat or recovery actions after a threat. This course will also help you to understand the concept of risk in smart grids, and effect of cascading failure in security, concept of actors, interactions between actors, security in communications and loss of integrity.

The Smart Grid Cybersecurity training course also will teach you the different levels of security assessment in smart grids such as prevention of vulnerabilities, identifying the potential threats before they cause risk, respond to each threat, recovery from threats if the preventing procedures did not help. Moreover, you will learn the concept of risk, risk assessment, and security architecture, and results of availability loss for each components.

Finally, the Smart Grid Cybersecurity training course will introduce concept of high level security in smart grid which includes the introduction to security requirements, access control, accountability of smart grids, security assessments, configuration managements, incident response, media protection, personnel security, risk management, SCADA security management, and electric vehicle security. By the end of the training, you will be able to fully understand the security concepts in smart grids.
