Sellersville, PA: The global leader in industrial automation cybersecurity services, exida, has launched the self-paced training course CS 100 - IEC 62443: Automation Cybersecurity Analysis, Design, and Operation.

A recent global security survey showed that 90% of automation systems in critical infrastructure applications experienced a damaging cyberattack within the last two years. Cybersecurity has quickly become a major priority for automation systems of all types and sizes, especially for Safety Instrumented Systems. 

This course provides an overview of the automation cybersecurity lifecycle. The course reviews cybersecurity risk assessment, developing zones and conduits, cybersecurity requirement specification (CSRS), designing secure systems, Security Level Determination and Verification, detailed design considerations, and operations requirements. Detailed workshop problems are used to provide students with practical cybersecurity experience.

Skills You Will Learn:

  • How a lifecycle approach improves cybersecurity readiness
  • How to conduct cybersecurity risk assessments to match risk profile
  • How to effectively segment automation systems 
  • Actionable steps to “harden” your automation system today
  • How to perform Security Level Verification
  • How to implement a cybersecurity management program for continuously improving security
  • How to monitor cybersecurity during the operations and maintenance phase
  • How to align cybersecurity with existing automation lifecycles

This course forms a broad review in preparation for the Certified Automation Cybersecurity Expert (CACE) and Certified Automation Cybersecurity Specialist (CACS) automation application exam.

This course contains extensive workshop case studies to further cement the learning in a practical nature and is delivered in two parts that are explained below.
