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 next intake starts on the week of July 10, 2017.
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.

How Does it Work?
EIT eLearning courses involve a combination of live, interactive sessions over the Internet with a professional instructor, set readings, and assignments. The courses include simulation software and remote laboratory applications to let you put theory to practice, and provide you with constant support from a dedicated Course Coordinator.
Practical Exercises and Remote Laboratories
As part of the groundbreaking new way of teaching, our online engineering courses use a series of remote laboratories (labs) and simulation software, to facilitate your learning and to test the knowledge you gain during your course. These involve complete working labs set up at various locations of the world into which you will be able to log to and proceed through the various practical sessions.
These will be supplemented by simulation software, running either remotely or on your computer, to ensure you gain the requisite hands-on experience. No one can learn much solely from lectures, the labs and simulation software are designed to increase the absorption of the materials and to give you a practical orientation of the learning experience. All this will give you a solid, practical exposure to the key principles covered and will ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your course.
