ICS Security Awareness Training Is Critical

The frequency and severity of ICS security incidents are on the rise, with nearly half of ICS networks having faced some kind of cyberattack. Make sure this isn’t the case for your organization. With best-in-breed security training, engineers and other staff who interact with ICS can move beyond the concept of “think secure” and actually adopt behaviors to help prevent compromise in the first place.


Create a More Secure ICS Workforce

From plant managers to operations engineers to vice presidents of operations, each individual in the ICS hierarchy has an important role in protecting the infrastructure of major industries. Yet many of these individuals receive training better-suited for the corporate environment or, worse yet, no security training at all. With a focus on the unique needs of ICS industries, our training equips anyone who works within ICS environments with the information and tools necessary to protect and defend all types of control systems, including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Distributed Control Systems (DCS) and other small systems, such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).


As technological advancements like mobile devices, IoT and cloud interconnectivity continually transform how we work and behave, there are more opportunities than ever for a cyber attacker to do real and significant damage. From attack surfaces, to incident handling to real-world attack scenarios, our training ensures everyone involved with ICS knows how to safeguard all aspects of your organization’s systems.

I head up the Cyber Awareness program for TransCanada. We chose to partner with SANS Security Awareness after seeing the quality training materials that they had available for us to use in the program. The games, spot videos and course materials are what we need to take our security awareness program to the next level. SSA has very high quality materials for ICS/Engineers that we are looking at incorporating into the program in 2019.
