The increasing digitalization of industrial production facilities in the context of Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT makes dealing with security in the production environment necessary for managers and employees of manufacturers, integrators and operators. Industrial security is immensely important in order to ensure a permanently secure and reliable operation of networked plants. This is not only about technical solutions, but also about processes and the behavior of people. Training employees at scale and educating subject matter experts is a huge implementation task.
Reports of devastating cyber security incidents in companies are never-ending : By now everyone knows it is no longer a question of whether they will be hacked, but when they will be hacked. How can companies best protect themselves and prepare for potential incidents in the future in order to avoid severe damage?
Create risk awareness among your employees for the threat to your industrial facilities, and embed procedures to be prepared for the “worst case scenario”.
A training program for all areas and hierarchical levels ensuring the reliable operation of networked plants and the ability to react correctly even in the event of an attack.
The program is tailored to your needs and existing processes and is guided by the expert Pierre Kobes, one of the lead authors of the industrial standard IEC 62443.
Program of a client project for trainees in the field of production and maintenance (average 2 hrs. learning unit per week for 6 weeks).
The content in this section was developed with more than 20 companies and institutions. Among others, members of the industrial security working group in VDMA, Fraunhofer, Siemens, Rhebo, Goethe University Frankfurt, HiSolutions as well as Pepperl+Fuchs share their expertise on cybersecurity and IT & OT security in industry, e.g., in the security awareness training.
Pierre Kobes, our partner in IEC 62443, worked for SIEMENS AG for over 40 years and was responsible for standards, regulations and certifications for Siemens DI. He was involved in the development of most of the ISA/IEC 62443 documents as well as in several projects implementing the ISA/IEC 62443 standard within Siemens DI. Pierre Kobes continues to work on the further development of ISA/IEC 62443.
Learning goals vary significantly and it is rather unlikely that the use of a single method of content delivery to offers learners enough involvement, motivation, relevance, and context to allow them to reach the goal.
How do you combine the many different learning formats so that your learners achieve the learning objectives and your company benefits employees with future capabilities?
Almost every day, well-known companies find themselves in the headlines because they have been the victim of a cyberattack. For a long time now, security training and the development of measures have no longer been about the question of whether one will be affected, but when and to what extent. However, this does not mean that manufacturing companies should just sit and wait until the time comes. In this paper, we have listed what companies can do in advance to delay attacks and be as resilient as possible to attacks.
