SANS - Sneak Peek at the SANS ICS 515 Course
The SANS ICS 515 course is a follow on course to the popular ICS 410 cybersecurity essentials course that was introduced to the market last year at GridSec Con 2013. Following in that tradition, SANS will be introducing the second ICS defense focused course in the ICS curriculum at the NERC GridSec Con 2014 event. The new ICS course has been designed to empower students with the ability to understand and utilize active defense mechanisms in concert with incident response for industrial control system networks to respond to and deny cyber threats. This class uses a hands-on approach to give students a technical understanding of concepts such as; identifying attack paths and information that illuminates them, communicating control system needs to information technology personnel to deploy appropriate defenses, detecting malicious actors or threats on control system networks, and performing threat triage and incident response to ensure the safety and reliability of operations technology environments. While the full course is a 5-day format, SANS will be offering the unique audience of Electric sector cybersecurity practitioners a sneak peek at the course and specifically the second day's material. This course day provides students with an introduction to the idea of active defense as well as cyber counter intelligence to limit their control system threat landscape and deploy effective detection and defense measures against known and unknown threats. This sneak peek will also provide students the opportunity to hear an overview of the course topics covered in the full 5 day course.
