In the recent times ICS cybersecurity is in limelight due to surge in attacks on ICS environment whether be it oil and gas, defence industry, power utilities (generation and distribution), water and wastewater management and nuclear.
Considering significant importance, interest and requirement of professionals trained with ISA 62443 cybersecurity certification, the International Society of Automation (ISA) Bangalore Section organized (1st time in Bangalore-India) a globally recognized "ISA/IEC 62443 Cyber-security Certificate Programs" training course (Courtesy: Support from ISA-D14 & ISA-Europe) with professional experienced expert trainers from ISA-Europe.This is highly discounted fees compared to listed courses fees offered by ISA online (or at ISA USA/Europe classrooms) and 1st time being offered in India.
About ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Certificate Program: Globally recognized ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Certificate Program consists of 4 certificates.
Certificate-1: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist (Module-IC32) Certificate-2: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Specialist (Module-IC33) Certificate-3: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Design Specialist (Module-IC34) Certificate-4: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Maintenance Specialist (Module-IC37) ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Expert: Individual who achieves certificates 1, 2, 3 & 4 are designated as ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Expert.

About ISAB "ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Certificate Program" Training Course: At present, ISA Bangalore Section plans to organize this training course in 2 parts.
Part-A: 5-days ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity certificate class-room course (Part-A) covering Certificate-1 (IC32) & Certificate-2 (IC33) as described below: Part A.1: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist (IC32) 2-days classroom course on Using ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Industrial Control Systems. The move to using open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and process control networks has begun to expose these systems to the same cyberattacks that have wreaked so much havoc on corporate information systems. With the introduction of the new UK HSE Operational Guidance OG-0086, the need to understand the fundamentals of control system security has never been more important. This course provides a detailed look at how the ISA/IEC62443 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
Part A.2: ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Specialist (IC33) 3-days classroom course on ISA/IEC 62443 Standards on Assessing the Cybersecurity of Existing or New IACS i.e. Industrial Automation & Control Systems (IC-33)
The first phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA 62443-1-1) is to identify and document IACS assets and perform a cybersecurity vulnerability and risk assessment in order to identify and understand the high-risk vulnerabilities that require mitigation. Per ISA 62443-2-1 these assessments need to be performed on both new (i.e. greenfield) and existing (i.e. brownfield) applications. Part of the assessment process involves developing a zone and conduit model of the system, identifying security level targets, and documenting the cybersecurity requirements into a cybersecurity requirements specification (CRS).
In view of the dire requirement of the industry ISA Bangalore has organized certified training courses of IC32 and IC33 during 27-31 Jan 2020.This1st batch included 19 participants from various MNCs and local organizations like Deloitte, GE, Yokogawa, Siemens, Infosys, Uthunga, VJTI etc. and also some independent professionals. This 5 dayscourse was conducted at Bangalore covering IC32 (i.e ISA 62443 Fundamental Specialist) and IC33 (i.e ISA 62443 Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Specialist). The participants are from various backgrounds such as consultancies, oil and gas, power utilities etc.
