SANS Institute/ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials


ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials Certification Training Course Overview

ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials provides a foundational set of standardized skills and knowledge for industrial cybersecurity professionals. The course is designed to ensure that the workforce involved in supporting and defending industrial control systems is trained to keep the operational environment safe, secure, and resilient against current and emerging cyber threats.

The course will provide you with :

  • An understanding of industrial control system components, purposes, deployments, significant drivers, and constraints.
  • Hands-on lab learning experiences to control system attack surfaces, methods, and tools
  • Control system approaches to system and network defense architectures and techniques
  • Incident-response skills in a control system environment
  • Governance models and resources for industrial cybersecurity professionals.

Target Audience :

The course is designed for the range of individuals who work in, interact with, or can affect industrial control system environments, including asset owners, vendors, integrators, and other third parties. These personnel primarily come from four domains:

  • IT (includes operational technology support)
  • IT security (includes operational technology security)
  • Engineering
  • Corporate, industry, and professional standards

Course Prerequisites

Course participants need to have a basic understanding of networking and system administration, TCP/IP, networking design/architecture, vulnerability assessment, and risk methodologies. ICS410 covers many of the core areas of security and assumes a basic understanding of technology, networks, and security. For those who are brand new to the field and have no background knowledge, SEC301: Intro to Information Security would be the recommended starting point. While SEC301 is not a prerequisite, it provides introductory knowledge that will help maximize a student's experience with ICS410.

 



You will learn how to :

  • Better understand various industrial control systems and their purpose, application, function, and dependencies on network IP and industrial communications
  • Work with control network infrastructure design (network architecture concepts, including topology, protocols, and components) and their relation to IEC 62443 and the Purdue Model.
  • Run Windows command line tools to analyze the system looking for high-risk items
  • Run Linux command line tools (ps, ls, netstat, ect) and basic scripting to automate the running of programs to perform continuous monitoring of various tools
  • Work with operating systems (system administration concepts for Unix/Linux and/or Windows operating systems)
  • Better understand the systems' security lifecycle
  • Better understand information assurance principles and tenets (confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication, non-repudiation)
  • Use your skills in computer network defense (detecting host and network-based intrusions via intrusion detection technologies)
  • Implement incident response and handling methodologies
  • Map different ICS technologies, attacks, and defenses to various cybersecurity standards including NIST Cyber Security Framework, ISA/IEC 62443, ISO/IEC 27001, NIST SP 800-53, Center for Internet Security Critical Security Controls, and COBIT 5
