Introduction

This GLOMACS Process Control Cybersecurity training seminar will address the most important issues related to the protection of assets in a process control environment. Unlike traditional IT (information technology) systems, process control assets include IACS (Industrial Automation and Control Systems) which need to be protected.

Recently, three out of four organizations in the oil and natural gas industry in the Middle East have experienced a security compromise that resulted in the loss of confidential data or Operational Technology (OT) disruption. This is according to a recent study by Siemens and the Ponemon Institute. Another finding in the report is that – organizations believe that roughly one in every two cyber-attacks against the OT environment actually goes undetected. The report also notes that the oil and gas industry is the target of as much as one-half of all cyberattacks in the Middle East and given its importance for the region’s economies, the risks faced by the industry are all the more pressing. OT, which encompasses systems that monitor and control physical devices and industrial processes, is increasingly interconnected with IT networks. In spite of all its benefits, this IT/OT convergence is opening up new avenues for attacks.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Process control assets to be protected
  • The Current Industrial Security Environment
  • The process control security standard IEC 62443
  • Risk assessment and cybersecurity counter-measures
  • Application diagnostics, troubleshooting, and incidence response

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • List what process control assets need to be protected
  • Understand the Current Industrial Security Environment
  • List and explain the main components of the process control security standard IEC 62443
  • Understand how to perform risk assessment and apply cybersecurity counter-measures
  • Learn how to perform application diagnostics, troubleshooting, and incidence response

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Process Control Cybersecurity training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This would include, but not be limited to, effective presentations, open discussions, simulations, paper exercises, individual and group exercises, as well as small subject evaluations at the completion of every chapter. Questions are encouraged at all times.

Organisational Impact

Upon returning to their organization, delegates will be able to contribute to the successful execution of the following tasks and capabilities:

  • Discovering of threats, vulnerabilities affecting a process or plant
  • Performing appropriate asset identification and impact assessment
  • Using and implementing the standard IEC 62443
  • Performing appropriate risk analysis and risk identification
  • Addressing security risks
  • Protecting process and plant assets
  • Implementing process control security counter-measures
  • Performing application diagnostics and troubleshooting
  • Implementing cybersecurity operating procedures and incident response
  • Implementing a cybersecurity process
  • Having staff that can make valuable input pertaining to Cybersecurity Operating Procedures & Tools and Incident Response

Personal Impact

On this GLOMACS Process Control Cybersecurity training course, participants will gain knowledge and learn to apply themselves, fully, in matters pertaining to Process Control Cybersecurity. Such skills and knowledge should result in better career prospects within the organization, and will play a meaningful role in their abilities to be leaders in their field of expertise.

From a personal impact point of view, this GLOMACS training course will increase your knowledge and experience involving:

  • Cybersecurity principles
