Mission to Defend Critical Infrastructure

The world depends on critical infrastructure. Join us in this mission to protect the people and places that rely on industrial systems. Together, let's defend what makes, moves, and powers the world.

About Industrial Control Systems Security

ICS cyber security is focused on protecting industrial systems and operational technology (OT) against accidental or intentional risks. The SANS ICS Security Curricula provides training courses focused on assessing and defending ICS/OT environments. The SANS Institute offers introductory to advanced hands-on cyber security training to OT and IT cybersecurity professionals and control system engineers by equipping them with the skills needed to safeguard critical infrastructure. 

Join us in the mission to defend what makes, moves, and powers the world.  

Why is the ICS Security Mission Important?
  • Critical infrastructure is more interconnected and interdependent than ever throughout the world, allowing operational technology and control systems to be operated efficiently, yet potentially opening them up to adversaries and becoming targets of cyber-attack. 
  • The convergence of IT and OT systems has led to a growing number of cyber incidents impacting industrial control systems and critical infrastructure.
  • Industrial systems run the world, and the need for security professionals to defend them is critical. SANS ICS Security courses prepare cybersecurity professionals and control system engineers to be equipped with the necessary tools, knowledge, and capabilities to protect these systems and critical environments through hands-on learning and instruction from expert practitioners in the field.
  • Critical infrastructure needs to be protected for the sake of operations, national security, and most importantly, the safety of human life.
