Course Overview:

Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training – Hands-on

The objective of this Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training seminar is to provide an intensive, systematic treatment of classical solutions and new developments in SCADA technology, and deliver a thoroughly up-to-date view of emerging trends in this critical industry segment.

SCADA and Industrial Computing systems managers are at a crossroads, tempted by new developments in technology but cautious because of their mission-critical responsibility. This three-day Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training seminar program is designed to present SCADA and Industrial Computing personnel with a clear understanding of just how their environment is being redefined as a result of revolutionary changes in supporting technology.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.

Audience / Target Group:

The target audience for this Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course:

• Incident responders
• Forensic investigators
• Threat operation analysts
• Incident responders needing to quickly address system security breaches
• Threat operations analysts seeking a better understanding of network based malware and attacks

What You Will Learn:

Upon completing this Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

• This Scada and Industrial Computing Applications Training course includes a hands-on workshop component, in which students have opportunity to explore some of the important concept features of the Modbus SCADA protocol and view/analyze its operational features. If the hands-on activity is impractical due to lack of computers, students will be guided through an in-class demonstration of the workshop elements, and be left with software to replicate the hands-on part of the course on their own time.
