    Length: 1 days
    CEU Credits: .7
    Course Hours: 8:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m.
    Certification of Completion: A Certificate of Completion indicating the total number of CEUs earned will be provided upon successful completion of the course.

    Description:

    The industrial processing and manufacturing world faces considerable technical and practical challenges as it strives to provide safe, secure, profitable operations in a wide range of settings with varying levels of automation. In many instances where new sensors and instrumentation technology are being developed for specific use cases identified by the manufacturers, the vendors arrive at solutions that require remote access, may or may not require interoperability with legacy equipment. Perhaps even more importantly is that such system designs and associated operational processes come into direct conflict with cybersecurity demands. The issues – technical, logistical, programmatic – associated with cybersecurity for automation systems continue to expand in scope and urgency. This is driven by the increasing use of network-centric components and instrumentation that is integrated into modern DCS and SCADA systems. This has led to a financially unsustainable cybersecurity strategy – one in need of technical and fiscal change.
