This PetroDeep Process Control Cybersecurity training course will address the most important issues related to the protection of assets in a process control environment. Unlike traditional IT (information technology) systems, process control assets include IACS (industrial automation and control systems) which need to be protected. Recently, three out of four organizations in the oil and natural gas industry in the Middle East have experienced a security compromise that resulted in the loss of confidential data or operational technology (OT) disruption. This is according to a recent study by Siemens and the Ponemon Institute. Another finding in the report is that – organizations believe that roughly one in every two cyberattacks against the OT environment actually goes undetected. The report also notes that the oil and gas industry is the target of as much as one-half of all cyberattacks in the Middle East and given its importance for the region’s economies, the risks faced by the industry are all the more pressing. OT, which encompasses systems that monitor and control physical devices and industrial processes, is increasingly interconnected with IT networks. In spite of all its benefits, this IT/OT convergence is opening up new avenues for attacks. This PetroDeep training course will highlight: • Process control assets to be protected • The Current Industrial Security Environment • The process control security standard IEC 62443 • Risk assessment and cybersecurity counter-measures • Application diagnostics, troubleshooting, and incidence response
