Why ICS/SCADA Cybersecurity?

You will learn powerful methods to analyze the risk of both the IT and corporate network. Once your foundation has been set, you will look at the best practices and recommendations when it comes to bridging the air gap. You will learn a systematic process of intrusion and malware analysis. Once you have the process for analysis mastered, you will be introduced to the digital forensic process and how to respond to incidents when a breach is detected.
