September 28, 2021 - September 30, 2021


Length : 3 Days

CEU Credits : 2.1

Course Hours :

Certificate Program: Part of the ISA/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Certificate Program

Your course registration includes your registration for the exam.


The third phase in the IACS Cybersecurity Lifecycle (defined in ISA 62443-1-1) focuses on the activities associated with the ongoing operations and maintenance of IACS cybersecurity. This involves network diagnostics and troubleshooting, security monitoring and incident response, and maintenance of cybersecurity countermeasures implemented in the Design & Implementation phase. This phase also includes security management of change, backup and recovery procedures and periodic cybersecurity audits.

This course will provide students with the information and skills to detect and troubleshoot potential cybersecurity events as well as the skills to maintain the security level of an operating system throughout its lifecycle despite the challenges of an every changing threat environment.

You will be able to:

  • Perform basic network diagnostics and troubleshooting
  • Interpret the results of IACS device diagnostic alarms and event logs
  • Implement IACS backup and restoration procedures
  • Describe the IACS patch management life cycle and procedure
  • Apply an antivirus management procedure
  • Define the basics of application control and white listing tools
  • Define the basics of network and host intrusion detection
