Assessing the Cybersecurity of New or Existing IACS Systems (IC33)

May 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

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).

This course will provide students with the information and skills to assess the cybersecurity of a new or existing IACS and to develop a cybersecurity requirements specification that can be used to document the cybersecurity requirements the project.

Speaker: Marco Ayala

You Will Be Able to:

◾Identify and document the scope of the IACS under assessment
◾Specify, gather or generate the cybersecurity information required to perform the assessment
◾Identify or discover cybersecurity vulnerabilities inherent in the IACS products or system design
◾Organize and facilitate a cybersecurity risk assessment for an IACS
◾Identify and evaluate realistic threat scenarios
◾Identify gaps in existing policies, procedures and standards
◾Establish and document security zones and conduits
◾Prepare documentation of assessment results
