THE COURSE

This course will give you a fundamental understanding of security in effective industrial networking and data communications technology. It will also present you with the key issues associated with security in industrial communications networks and will assist managers, system operators and industrial data communications specialists in setting up secure systems.

On completion of the course you will have developed a practical insight into how to achieve optimum industrial network security for your organisation.

Topics covered include: introduction and terminology; firewalls; authentication, authorisation and anonymity; remote access to corporate networks; cryptography; VPN’s; data security; desktop and network security; security precautions in a connected world; and internet security.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  • Apply the fundamental concepts of industrial network security to your SCADA and automation systems
  • Conduct a preliminary analysis of your industrial networks and prepare to withstand and anticipate attacks and apply defences
  • Discuss the issues of industrial network security competently with your associates in IT and vendors
  • Understand and be able to construct a secure robust Local Area Network
  • Learn how to plan and design your networks better
  • Analyse and construct a typical firewall
