  November 12, 2019

exida Cyber Week

To help ensure 2020 gets off to a good start, exida is dedicating a week to Cybersecurity in Warwick, UK with open enrollment classes and a free seminar.

20 Jan:  Automation Cybersecurity: Introduction to IEC 62443

This course provides an overview of the IEC 62443 standard and explains the fundamental concepts for cybersecurity protection of automation systems including industrial control systems, manufacturing systems, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems). Students will walk away from this course with a better understanding of real-world cybersecurity attacks, the core principles of automation cybersecurity, and actionable knowledge to help achieve their cybersecurity objectives.

21 Jan:  Complimentary Cybersecurity Seminar

More and more companies are experiencing cybersecurity incidents. With approx. 360,000 malware attacks per day it’s hardly surprising.  Industrial Automation Control Systems (IACS)  are also vulnerable to both external and internal threats from intentional and unintentional sources.  As a result, companies are beginning to look at critical infrastructure and existing vulnerabilities, with insurance companies taking a greater interest in whether/how clients implement Cybersecurity measures.  Moreover, the IEC61511 standard for the process industries, that now also covers Food and Beverage and Pharmaceuticals, was updated in 2016 to include a cyber risk assessment requirement for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). The IEC62443 Industrial Controls Cybersecurity standard is recommended to be followed to undertake a cybersecurity SIS risk assessment.  As with the IEC61511 Standard, the IEC62443 Standard also follows a lifecycle approach.

This seminar identifies a pragmatic approach to implementing the requirements of IEC62443, for the SIS and any IACS, as well as identifying the potential vulnerabilities and likely consequences.  If you would like to know more about how to protect your existing and new systems, then this seminar is a must-see.

Who Should Attend?

  • Managers, Supervisors and Leads
  • Controls Engineers
  • IT/OT owners
  • Operations

What You Will Learn

  • The urban myths surrounding Cybersecurity
  • The key requirements for a pragmatic implementation
  • Typical Threats and Vulnerabilities that can be used to exploit the SIS and IACS
  • How to partition and segment the communication network from a cybersecurity point of view
  • The dos and don’ts of Cybersecurity

22-23 Jan:  Industrial Automation Control Systems (IACS) IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Lifecycle

This course addresses integration of cyber security into the functional safety lifecycle per the IEC 62443 standards. While cybersecurity introduced many unique activities that are specific to its technology, with respect to the industrial automation control system, including safety controls, alarms and interlocks, there is a synergistic efficiency to leveraging the functional safety lifecycle when implementing cybersecurity in the control world. Participants in this course will progress through the major phases of the Cybersecurity Lifecycle: Assessment, Design & Implementation, and Operation & Maintenance - identifying the necessary inputs and processes to achieve the required outputs for each phase.
