SecurityWeek has announced that it will offer an Advanced ICS/SCADA Hacking Training program at its 2019 Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference, which takes place October 21-24 in Atlanta.
Conducted in partnership with critical infrastructure cyber security firm Applied Risk, the Advanced ICS/SCADA Hacking training will enable participants to increase their knowledge of security analysis and exploitation methodologies for evaluating the cyber resilience of industrial environments and hardware, and is designed to further advance the skills of technical staff responsible for securing ICS environments.
Simulating real-life attacks against key ICS/SCADA components, the course will focus on industrial systems and devices, such as Programmable Logic Controllers, Variable Frequency Drives and Safety Controllers, as well as protocols used in ICS environments such as Profinet and Modbus.
SecurityWeek’s ICS Cyber Security Conference is the largest and longest-standing conference focused on industrial cybersecurity. It brings together operations and control engineers, IT professionals, government representatives, vendors and academics. It has a focus on sharing case studies from previous security events and discussing solutions and protection strategies for energy, utility, chemical, transport, manufacturing and other industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The Conference offers four days of content and training from industry experts and is considered the leading forum for industrial cyber security.
“After selling out this workshop at SecurityWeek’s Singapore ICS Cyber Security Conference with fantastic feedback, we are excited to offer this valuable training option to our U.S. attendees,” said Mike Lennon, Managing Director at SecurityWeek. “This level of focused training is a rare opportunity for operators of complex industrial systems to expand their technical skills for protecting OT environments.”
“Our Advanced ICS/SCADA Hacking Training provides participants with an opportunity for a hands-on device and protocol exploration, granting exposure to the wide-array of cyber threats facing critical infrastructure and secure against them,” said Scott Thomas, a Senior ICS Security Consultant at Applied Risk.
Registration for the full day workshop is currently open with limited seats available. For further registration details please find more information here.
