Industrial Automation Control Systems (IACS) IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Lifecycle

Course Description

This course addresses integration of cyber security into the functional safety lifecycle per the IEC 62443 standards. While cybersecurity introduced many unique activities that are specific to its technology, with respect to the industrial automation control system, including safety controls, alarms and interlocks, there is a synergistic efficiency to leveraging the functional safety lifecycle when implementing cybersecurity in the control world. Participants in this course will progress through the major phases of the Cybersecurity Lifecycle: Assessment, Design & Implementation, and Operation & Maintenance – identifying the necessary inputs and processes to achieve the required outputs for each phase.
