Understanding of IT security for industrial control and automation

Basic understanding of IT Security for Industrial Control and Automation Systems according to IEC 62443

Many installations for industrial automation and control systems are built from standardised hardware and software components. These open systems facilitate the integration of individual components and enable the interconnection of control systems, installations and office IT even over long distances. Integrated communication accelerates production, provides for a clearer overview and cuts development and production costs. However, open systems are also “open“ to attacks and manipulation. The vulnerability of industrial automation and control systems was revealed by the Stuxnet attack at the latest. Analyses, assessments and tests play a key role in implementing appropriate security controls against these threats. The challenge thereby is to harmonise the requirements of IT security with the specific demands of automation and control systems (including real time, safety) as well as the security for safety principle which needs to be implemented.

Our expert training introduces you to the topic of IT security based on the IEC 62443 family of standards, taking into account issues related to control and automation systems.

Target group of the IEC 62443 IT security training
