Secure Your Control & Automation Systems.

Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards

The ISA Ireland Section and the ISA European Office are conducting Cybersecurity Training Courses in both Cork & Dublin this September.

ISA’s cybersecurity courses and exams are built on the solid foundation of the ISA/IEC 62443 series of industry consensus standards, which give requirements for security assessment, design, implementation, operations, and management of devices and processes. The series of standards cover the complete lifecycle of cybersecurity protection, are a part of the NIST US Cybersecurity Framework, and have been developed in coordination with government and academia.

The first course is entitled: Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Your Control Systems (IC32)
The move to using open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and process control networks has begun to expose these systems to the same cyberattacks that have wreaked so much havoc on corporate information systems. This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
Cork: 17-18 September 2018
Dublin:  24-25 September 2018

The second course is: Assessing the Cybersecurity of New or Existing IACS Systems (IC33)
The first phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA 62443-1-1) is to identify and document IACS assets and perform a cybersecurity vulnerability and risk assessment in order to identify and understand the high-risk vulnerabilities that require mitigation. Per ISA 62443-2-1 these assessments need to be performed on both new (i.e. greenfield) and existing (i.e. brownfield) applications. Part of the assessment process involves developing a zone and conduit model of the system, identifying security level targets, and documenting the cybersecurity requirements into a cybersecurity requirements specification (CRS).
Cork: 19-21 Septemeber 2018
Dublin: 26-28 September 2018

These courses provides a detailed look at how the ISA/IEC62443 standards can be used to protect critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.

Places are limited for these courses and there will be no further courses in this range until 2019.
