About this talk

The current cybersecurity skills shortage in industrial control systems and operational technology has become significant. A lack of specific cyber-skills is putting businesses at increased risk of an attack infiltrating their network, which calls for more quality training materials to support specialists working in these fields. In response, Kaspersky Lab and Fraunhofer IOSB have collaborated to develop a new ICS cybersecurity training course, designed to help employees understand and defend their businesses against growing cyberthreats. The new course is aimed at IT/OT managers and engineers, as well as IT security generalists, who want to learn about the specifics of ICS cybersecurity. To find out more about how this course can benefit businesses, Kaspersky Lab and Fraunhofer IOSB are hosting a joint webinar highlighting the importance of ICS cybersecurity education. The session will explore recent ICS security related incidents and vulnerabilities, along with real-life examples, to show the true impact of cyberattacks on ICS equipment. The full webinar will cover the following topics: ∙ The differences between IT and OT security ∙ The relevance of ICS vulnerabilities and the need for ICS security ∙ A short overview of relevant standards and guidelines ∙ Sample demonstrations and an outline of advanced training course content
