exida launches self-paced cybersecurity lifecycle course

Functional safety certifying company exida has launched its first self-paced cyber course — CS 102: Industrial Automation Control Systems (IACS) IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Lifecycle.

CS 102 addresses integration of cybersecurity into the functional safety lifecycle per the IEC 62443 standards. While cybersecurity introduces 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.

exida said that 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.

Participants will learn:

  • how the cybersecurity lifecycle is applied
  • what each phase means to the entire process
  • what inputs are required for each step
  • what the anticipated output is for each step
  • how the lifecycle is applied to ISA/IEC-62443.

The exida Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in this course.

The CSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CACE or CACS.

An exam will be given at the conclusion of the training course, and is optional. For more information click here.
