CS 203 - IEC 62443 Cybersecurity for Industrial Automation Control Systems (IACS) for Employees & Contractors

This course addresses the quality and understanding employees and contractors need to have on the topic of cybersecurity for the IEC 62443 IACS space. The access granted to IACS networks is often the same for employees and contractors. The seriousness of access must be established with a joint work process similar to a Job Safety Assessment. The Job Cyber Assessment is a work process to protect both client and contractor from inadvertent impact on the given IACS cyber protective system The ability to access the client’s network without an impact on the IACS cyber protective systems whilst leveraging the tools on site requires a clear understanding of the following.

CS 204 - IEC62443 Cybersecurity for Integrators and Solution Providers

This course addresses solution providers acting in roles of integrators and on-going support of industrial automated control systems, and how they interact with owner / operators as part of the overall supply chain throughout the owner / operator’s lifecycle. The maturity model is introduced as a means of measuring the quality of an integrators cybersecurity management system versus the requirements of IEC 62443-2-4, which is largely the basis for this course. Some coverage of IEC 62443-2-1 is also provided as a means to show the interface between owner / operators and the integrator.
