SANS has joined forces with industry leaders to equip security professionals and control system engineers with the cybersecurity skills they need to defend national critical infrastructure. Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (ICS410) provides a foundational set of standardised skills and knowledge for industrial cybersecurity professionals. The course is designed to ensure that the workforce involved in supporting and defending industrial control systems is trained to keep the operational environment safe, secure, and resilient against current and emerging cyber threats.

Learning Outcome

The course will provide you with:

  • An understanding of industrial control system components, purposes, deployments, significant drivers, and constraints
  • Hands-on lab learning experiences to control system attack surfaces, methods, and tools
  • Control system approaches to system and network defense architectures and techniques
  • Incident-response skills in a control system environment
  • Governance models and resources for industrial cybersecurity professionals


Who should Attend?

The course is designed for the range of individuals who work in, interact with, or can affect industrial control system environments, including:

  • Asset owners
