Industrial Cyber Security


Why Choose this Online Training Course?

The threat of Cyber Attacks is widespread and global, and effects individuals, commercial organisations and nation states alike.  The ability to safeguard your organisation and technology from attacks, and more importantly understand how to identify, analyse, respond and investigate cyber-attacks as a security breach is paramount.  The ability for an Information Security Breach resulting in the circumvention of operational technology controls can have disastrous effects, as we have seen with global documented case such as Ukraine Power Station attack.

Attacks are growing in number and sophistication. The networked control systems are often integrated and reliance with specialist strategic partners underpins your organisational risk and competitive ability. Furthermore, to effectively detect and deter any cyber-attack, you need to understand the nature, motive and ways of perceived cyber threat actors. In doing so and utilising appropriate countermeasures, best practice and management techniques will mitigate the risk of cyber-attack and enhance protection to your assets.

Boards of directors, corporate officers, chief engineers and frontline employees are starting to understand the implication of Cyber breaches within their organisation and their potential effect to their personal liability.   Therefore, Cyber Security is a core value for leaders in today’s digital economy environment.
