What would a cybersecurity breach do to your organization?

Are you equipped to prioritize and address the cyber security risks in your industrial control environment? Spear-phishing email attacks, malware and viruses have been identified as a way hackers aim to gain access to logistics facilities, power plants, oil and gas firms, city government and warehouse systems. When it comes to cyberattacks and data breaches, most people think about computer network security. But it is important to realize cybercriminals can – and do – target virtually any digital device or system, including power and electrical systems.

A successful information security program should be aligned with business objectives, regulatory requirements, industry standards and enterprise risk management. This requires:

• Assessing an organization’s exposure and risk;
• Knowledge of the rapidly evolving threat landscape;
• Developing a prioritized strategy that both mitigates risk and matures infosec capabilities in order to enable future business initiatives.



Who should attend
This online training is for engineers, IT professionals, operations, maintenance and warehouse personnel, government and utility officials, consultants, insurance providers and business people responsible for system security.

Attendees to this online training series will be able to:

• Identify business assets that are most vulnerable. What is your organization's exposure and risk;
• Know the current threats;
• Know how to get started drawing a roadmap to protect your assets;
• Understand why targeted security training is important and what needs to be done to develop a successful training program;
• Develop tactical solutions for modeling threats, assessing and addressing security risk and privacy for: cloud, data, endpoints, IoT/ICS, mobile, networks, supply chain…
