How can we progress from control system security policy development to design, deployment, and assessment?
This course was designed to help organizations struggling with control system cybersecurity by equipping personnel with the skills needed to design, deploy, operate, and assess a control system's cybersecurity architecture. The course begins by quickly describing the risks and then introducing the participants to a customizable actuator and sensor control system trainer and programmable logic environment. This automation programming analysis creates the platform to identify logic flaws that combined with active cyber, physical, and operational procedures may lead to increased risk. The participants then utilize this knowledge to analyze the control system architecture through cyber, physical and operational risks including:
Control System component engineered, programmed and firmware logic flaws
Wired and wireless communication protocol analysis
Physical, cyber and operational procedures
Deterrence, detection and response to threats
The participant's knowledge is challenged through non-kinetic and kinetic analysis associated with common industry components using small-scale simulated control system environments such as Traffic Lights, Chemical Storage and Mixing, Pipelines, Robotic Arms, Heavy Rail and Power Grids.
