This course is 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 generating and using threat intelligence, 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.
Robert M. Lee will be running the new course ICS515: ICS Active Defense Incident Response for the first time in Europe at ICS Amsterdam 2015.
