As the existing courses are nearing capacity, we have added the course Building A Robust OT Security Program to the lineup of classes on the Friday following S4x16 (Jan 15th in Miami South Beach). The unique feature of this course is the teachers: Ralph Langner and Perry Pederson of The Langner Group. Here is the course description:
- Attend this crash course to learn about all the elements of a solid OT security program and how to implement it.
- A company’s ability to address cyber security efficiently and sustainably always starts with developing a sound strategy. All cyber security standards and regulations, from ISA99 to the NIST Cyber Security Framework, call for a robust cyber security program. Unfortunately, most of these standards don’t tell you exactly what such a program should look like, let alone provide any useful examples or templates for policies, configuration, system inventories, metrics etc.
- The Langner Group’s RIPE OT security program is used as the reference base. It is successfully in use in the nuclear, chemical, pharmaceutical, and water industry. A special focus will be placed on how to build a system inventory, which is not needed just for OT security but also for maintainability, and is a crucial prerequisite for all plans to move to the Industrial Internet.
- The price for this six hour course is only $400, and you won’t see Ralph teach in the US, or anywhere else, that often.
