Industrial Control Systems Security

The Industrial Control Systems Security course focuses on security issues of ICS/SCADA environments. Participants will learn how to protect Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and industrial field devices. The Industrial Control Systems Course offers hands-on exercises accompanied with content learning.

After the 4 days long course, the  Cyber-Physical Battlefield Workshop will be held on Friday (18th of October), to support the preparation of experts involved in preparation of Cyber Physical Battlefields, especially for the experts who are involved in the NATO Cyber Coalition exercise. About the workshop registration process, see the details at the bottom of the page.

  • Understand the PLC ladder logic programming
  • Prepare or manipulate communications exploit and control
  • Use Industrial Protocol spoofing and fuzzing
  • Design industrial wireless analysis
  • Apply HMI exploit analysis and control
  • Discover attribution and forensics in control systems

Target Audience

Technical IT-staff working in administrator and auditor roles whose daily duties do not necessarily include IC/SCADA-security.

Prerequisites

  • Administrating Windows and Linux based systems
  • Understand the main networking protocols
  • Comfortable with using virtual machines for training environment (Virtual Box or similar).

Cyber-Physical Battlefield Workshop

To support the preparation of experts involved in preparation of Cyber Physical Battlefields, the Centre provides this workshop. The workshop is open to all individuals from NATO CCDCOE Sponsoring Nations and Contributing Participants. The participation is open for the students also, who participated at the ICSS course in the past, not only for the participants at the current course.

Learning Objectives

The workshop gives an idea of how to construct a cyber physical battlefield in practice. It is intended to give initial theoretical basics, needs, and an idea where to read further. After that the workshop members will immediately face hands-on problems to solve using their previous knowledge.

Target Audience

The workshop has been designed for specialists, who are involved in designing and constructing of Cyber Physical Battlefields. In general, the expected audience should consist of people who have a background in industrial control systems, cyber exercises, whether gained from studies at university or by practical experience, or both. Professional security practitioners or penetration testers with years of experience are not the target audience for this course.

 Outline

  • Introduction of environment, safety regulations
  • Short overview of Cyber Exercises
  • Short overview of Critical Infrastructure
  • Short overview of Cyber Physical Systems
  • Overview of Cyber-Physical Battlefield
  • Building up the hardware of CPB.
  • Building up the software of CPB.

 Prerequisites

  • Practice in industrial controller hardware constructing
  • Practice in Siemens TIA Portal
  • Comfortable with using virtual machines and environment (Virtual Box or similar).
  • ADL 347 Critical Infrastructure and Industrial Control Systems (Pre-study material for Industrial Control Systems Security Course)
  • CCD CoE Industrial Control Systems Security Course
