  • The GICSP: A Keystone Certification by Derek R. Harp and Bengt Gregory-Brown - August 29, 2016 

    The Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP) certification was conceived in the winter of 2013 to address a growing challenge spanning multiple industries. Rapid and accelerating changes in technology were increasingly opening process control and automation system networks and equipment to security exposures, and developing a workforce to protect these systems was a growing concern. As a step towards addressing these and other control system security issues, representatives from Shell, Chevron, Saudi Aramco, BP, Rockwell Automation, Yokogawa Industries, Emerson, ABB, Cimation and the SANS Institute came together and laid out the framework of what would become the GICSP.
