Threats to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) can come from numerous sources, including adversarial sources such as hostile governments, terrorist groups, industrial spies, disgruntled employees, malicious intruders, and natural sources such as from system complexities, human errors and accidents, equipment failures and natural disasters. To protect against adversarial threats (as well as known natural threats), it is essential for engineers, management, and system administrators to create a defense-in-depth strategy for the industrial control systems.
This course addresses critical cybersecurity issues and vulnerabilities that need to be addressed in a new or existing industrial control systems domain. It also provides effective security mitigation strategies recommended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for engineers to guard against internal and external threats and attacks in order to protect plantsí assets, personnel, public safety, and the environments.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
