Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to sit the exam with the International Society of Automation (ISA) and receive the highly regarded ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist certificate.
The move to using open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and process control networks has begun to expose these systems to the same cyberattacks that have wreaked so much havoc on corporate information systems. This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments. This course will assist managers, system operators and industrial data communications specialists in setting up secure systems.
Topics covered include: introduction and terminology; electronic security; threat sources; understanding the current industrial security environment; how cyberattacks happen; creating a security program; risk analysis; addressing risk with security policy, organization, and awareness; addressing risk with selected security counter measures; addressing risk with implementation measures; monitoring and improving the CSMS.
If you are using any form of communication system, this course will give you the essential tools in securing and protecting your industrial networks whether they be automation, process control, PLC or SCADA based.

Industrial data communications, networking and IT systems are key components of all modern plants and facilities and industrial infrastructure. Robust and reliable communications links are now critical in almost every industry. There are daily reports of viral and hack attacks on industrial computer systems and there is an extraordinary need for up-to-date training and education in these areas.
To address the shortage of well-trained industrial data communications, networking and industrial IT personnel, EIT has developed an Advanced Diploma in Industrial Data Communications, Networking and IT. The short courses that form part of EIT's professional development series are designed to provide students with critical knowledge and practical tools that can be immediately applied to the workplace. They are ideal to up-skill and/or cross-skill in a particular area or technology.
Typical subjects that are taught and researched in the EIT School of Data Communications and Industrial IT include: computer systems engineering, data communications and networking protocols and standards, troubleshooting systems, Fieldbus, DeviceNet, Ethernet, Radio telemetry systems, fiber optics, DNP3, 61850, routers and switches, SCADA, Modbus, programmable logic controllers, RFID tagging, industrial network security and programming.
