Our SCADA security instructors have both SCADA security and IT security expertise - rare combination. Now updated with an in-depth lab on Stuxnet
SCADA, DCS and other process control networks, generically called SCADA, run the nation's mission critical infrastructure, everything from the power grid to water treatment, chemical manufacturing to transportation. These networks are at increasing risk due to the move to standard protocols, the Microsoft OS and interconnection to other networks. Learn the skills required to direct and manage the appropriate cyber security protection for your SCADA system.
Today, IT departments and the classic IT security approach is wreaking havoc with SCADA systems. Too often, IT 'fixes' bring a SCADA system down, but avoiding or ignoring cyber security is not an option. Learn how standard IT security solutions can be used in SCADA systems and where SCADA specific security controls and practices are required. This course will teach you to develop a SCADA cyber security program and work with internal and external IT resources to implement the program.
Our Expert Instructors:
Our SCADA security instructors have both SCADA security and IT security expertise, a rare combination. They have performed assessments, designed security architectures, and written and audited security policies on a wide variety of real world SCADA systems in the oil & gas, electric, water and other industries.

Preface: Modern Medical Devices and their Software Contemporary healthcare relies heavily on medical devices to help patients lead normal and healthy lives. Yet there are security problems ranging from cyber exploitation to common bugs in the software. This article focuses more on implantable medical devices (IMDs) — insulin pumps and pacemakers/defibrillators in particular — their […]
Introduction The recent incident to the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is fueling the discussion of whether would be possible to hack into an airplane and gain complete control control of on-board systems, excluding the pilots. In the past, we have seen many security experts present possible attack scenarios, but never has an attacker made them […]
Preface: “Modern Cars” As Dr. Charlie Miller & Chris Valasek stated in their research paper Adventures in Automotive Networks and Control Units, “Automobiles are no longer just mechanical devices. Today’s automobiles contain a number of different electronic components networked together that as a whole are responsible for monitoring the state of the vehicle.” The concept […]
Introduction The theme of the car hacking is increasingly discussed by the media and within the security community. At one time, the exploits of hackers that have hijacked a car were the subject of movie scenes. Today they are a disturbing reality that we discuss in this article. One of the effects of the massive […]

Introduction Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) networks contain computers and software that perform critical tasks and provide essential services within critical infrastructure. They’re considered by cyber strategists to be the backbone of any country. Critical infrastructure, and in particular control systems, require protection from a variety of cyber threats that could compromise their ordinary […]
