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.
