This Governance and Management of Energy Cybersecurity training course covers the activities involved in the planning, evaluation, running, and monitoring the security of your energy assets. The cyberspace and all it entails including the Energy Sector is no longer the same due to the threats of cybersecurity breaches. These cybersecurity violations have demonstrated that no system, no matter how carefully designed, is secure. The scale, significance, and damage of such incident are vast.

By attending this training course you will get a deep understanding of the crucial steps that are required to plan and manage the protection and defense of your energy and power plants from cyberattacks. The major cybersecurity incidents and breaches clearly indicate that the security of critical infrastructures in the energy sector are more vulnerable than ever. Protecting Cyber-physical systems in the Energy Sector requires proper cybersecurity governance and management best practices.

By the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the Energy Sector environment and explain its architecture
  • List and explain how cybersecurity is applied to critical infrastructures
  • List and describe the various cybersecurity management frameworks
  • Apply the IEC/ISA CSMS to your organization
  • Analyze the guidance on the IEC/ISA CSMS

Participants to this course will receive a thorough training using several techniques that include coverage of material, discussions, breakout exercises, videos, and tests. The hands-on breakout exercises will be performed in groups and will enable participant to apply the material to real world scenarios with active discussions with other members of the group.

The organisation will benefit from understanding the principles of cybersecurity of the Energy Sector with emphasis on the governance and management aspects and how these can be applied.

The organisation will benefit from this training course through:

  • Enhancing analytical and problem solving skills
  • Learning how to analyze the cybersecurity of Energy and Power infrastructures
  • Being able to apply cybersecurity governance and management best practices
  • Learning how to perform cybersecurity risk assessment
  • Apply cybersecurity management systems
  • Developing cybersecurity plans including those for monitoring, event management, and incident response
  • Becoming adaptive and improve their cybersecurity while at the same time serve stakeholders and the public at the highest level

The participants will gain or enhance their understanding and application of cybersecurity governance and  management. The training course will be of personal benefit to delegates by enabling them to:

  • Understand how attacks happen in an Energy Sector environment
