What you'll learn

Training overview

From the power grid to water treatment facilities, SCADA controls our nation’s mission-critical infrastructure. Infosec’s ICS/SCADA Boot Camp builds your homeland security skills by teaching you how to assess and secure SCADA systems — and you’ll gain hands-on experience on the latest threats via our SCADA Cyber Range.

You’ll learn everything from field-based attacks to automated vulnerability assessments for SCADA networks. The boot camp also prepares you to pass the CSSA certification exam and become a Certified SCADA Security Architect.
