Industrial Control Systems summit and training heads to London

  • London
  • 5 July 2016

SANS Institute will be running a dedicated Industrial Control Systems (ICS) security summit and training event including the innovative SANS SEC562: CyberCity Hands-on Kinetic Cyber Range in London this September.

SANS ICS London 2016 runs from 19th to 25th of September and kicks off with the ICS summit including presentations offering an analysis of the cyber-attack on the Ukrainian power grid along with ICS sessions from experts from Audi, TFL and KPMG offering a broad line-up of topics.

The 6 day event welcomes the updated ICS515: ICS Active Defence and Incident Response course led by Rob M. Lee, course author and former Cyber Warfare Operations Officer in the U.S. Air Force who was also recently named to the 2016 class of Forbes "30 Under 30" for Enterprise Technology.

The event will also be the only opportunity for students to take the SEC562: CyberCity Hands-on Kinetic Cyber Range Exercise that uses a virtual city complete with computers, networks, and programmable logic controllers operating the physical infrastructure, ranging from electrical power grids, water systems, and traffic systems all the way down to HVAC systems and industrial automation. The exciting course teaches participants how to analyse and assess the security of control systems and related infrastructures, finding vulnerabilities that could result in significant kinetic impact.

The event also welcomes the popular SANS ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials that provides a foundational set of standardised skills and knowledge for industrial cybersecurity professionals. The course is designed to ensure that the workforce involved in supporting and defending industrial control systems is trained to keep the operational environment safe, secure, and resilient against current and emerging cyber threats. ICS410 will be led by its co-author Eric Cornelius, SANS instructor and Director of Critical Infrastructure and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) at Cylance, Inc. Previously, Eric served as the Deputy Director and Chief Technical Analyst for the Control Systems Security Program at the US Department of Homeland Security.

SANS is offering an early bird discount on courses booked by August 10th. For more information including the entire schedule or to register, please visit: www.sans.org/ics-london-2016
