SANS Institute has announced that its upcoming in-person training program, SANS ICS410 Doha May 2022, will take place from 28 May – 2 June 2022 at the InterContinental Doha.

Taught by real world practitioners, the course aims to train those cyber workforces supporting and defending industrial control systems in keeping the operational environment safe, secure and resilient against current and emerging cyber-threats.

“Due to the dynamic nature of industrial control systems, many engineers are unaware of the characteristics and risks of various devices. Furthermore, IT support staff that supply communications pathways and network defences may not necessarily understand the operational drivers and constraints of the systems,” said Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute.

“With our ICS410 training, SANS intends to assist traditional IT personnel in the region in completely comprehending the design principles that underpin control systems as well as how to support those systems in a way that ensures availability and integrity.”

Led in person by Stephen Mathezer, SANS ICS410 features the ICS410: ICS/SCADA Security Essentials course. This provides a foundational set of skills and core security principles necessary for the range of tasks that are involved in supporting control systems on a daily basis. Participants will benefit from learning experiences in hands-on, virtual lab to control system attack surfaces, methods and tools and develop incident-response skills in a control system environment.
