Cyber Security Risk Management Training Course

=Method offers the Cyber Security Risk Management training course for those responsible for the security of industrial automation, control and safety systems – known as “operational technology” (OT) to differentiate it from “information technology” (IT). The course recognises that the optimum approach to security in OT may be quite different to what would be considered good practice in an IT environment.

The overall goal of the training is to provide individuals responsible for OT security on industrial sites with sufficient knowledge that they can understand their obligations for legal and regulatory compliance, develop procedures and policies to achieve such compliance and manage the site's approach to OT security.

The course content is designed to explain the requirements of the various international standards for security and is developed to specifically address the guidance developed by the UK Health and Safety Executive on industrial security.

The course is presented over 3 days, with 2 days of conventional classroom training and the 3rd day comprising a structured role-play exercise (managing a cyber security attack), a review of the learning points highlighted by the role play and a short multiple-choice examination. =Method Certification will be awarded on full attendance of the course and successful completion of the case study work.
