Cybersecurity for Industrial Environments and Critical Infrastructures.

Some experts predict that by 2020 there will be 200 billion connected things. As technology becomes more and more deeply integrated into our lives, we become more and more dependent on it. This dependence makes us vulnerable if technology fails.

A three-day workshop designed with the aim of learning the general concepts of Cybersecurity at Industrial Environments and Critical Infrastructures, as well as its most important aspects and the basic protection against attacks is scheduled for Manchester (GB) in October.It is organised by Vester Industrial Training Center (VITC). VITC aims to meet the training needs of automation and energy professionals, who face day to day challenges with industrial communication technology.


The workshop entitled "Cybersecurity for Industrial Environments and Critical Infrastructures," includes theory as well as practical work. After the workshop each student will be provided with free software with all the test tools used during the three days training.

At the end of the course, the student will have the theoretical and practical knowledge to:
  • Evaluate threats and audit their monitoring and control systems.
  • Obtain a list of critical points and their direct relationship with the applied countermeasures.
  • Protect the most critical points of your installation and know what to do with the least critical ones.
  • Install and / or configure protection equipment with physical access.
  • Anti-intrusion systems application, computer security control and equipment firewall.
  • Provide a general overview of the most important concepts associated with industrial cybersecurity.
  • Analyze the main vulnerabilities and threats that may be experienced at industrial environments.
  • Know the different types of hacker attacks that can be carried out on an OT network or a critical infrastructure.
  • Describe the main countermeasures that can be included to fortify industrial networks and protocols.
  • Provide recommendations and practical advice to strengthen the company’s industrial systems and networks.
  • Introduce the main standards and/or the current and future laws regarding the implementation of said countermeasures.
The workshop will be held over a period of three days - 23rd, 24th and 25th October in Manchester (GB). The language of the workshop will be English and it has been designed to train technicians and engineers involved in the protection of critical industrial systems and the security measures implementation for PLC/SCADA/MES environments. It is mainly aimed at technical personnel involved in the design of architectures, installation, configuration, maintenance and supervision projects commissioning and/or remote control systems automation.
