Secure your IT systems on the GIAC Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP) course. This five-day course teaches you how to combine IT, cyber security and engineering best practices to secure your Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
You'll learn about:
- Standards and regulations for Industrial Control Systems
- Understanding system architecture, and how to apply hardening mechanisms
- Understanding the threats to the security of process control systems
- Technologies used to carry out security audits
You'll also take part in a series of practical exercises to consolidate your knowledge of using both wired and wireless networks. By the end of this course you'll know how to harden an ICS using end-point protection, securing removable media, or updating systems.
Firebrand's course will prepare you for the GIAC Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP) exam and provides knowledge equivalent to the SANS ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials.
Please note: Firebrand does not offer the GICSP exam, and the exam fee is not included in the course price.
