Internet of Things Security SE Workshop – Utilities Vertical (IOTSS-UTL)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Industrial Control systems (ICS), SCADA and OT networks operating within regulated Utility environments are held accountable to ever stringent NIST and NERC-CIP guidelines and mandates. This stems from the broader Smart Grid initiatives pervading the Utilities Industry. The next evolution in the Smart Grid story is the emergence of IT/OT Convergence, driving migration away from proprietary protocols to common TCP/IP network infrastructures. This shift does not come without consequences: ICS/OT critical infrastructure environments are more than ever susceptible to a greater range of security threats and attacks.
Fast Lane’s Internet of Things Security SE Workshop – Utilities Vertical is an immersive program for Cisco’s valued partners, providing a detailed understanding of the unique security challenges within ICS/OT Utility environments and the corresponding mitigating strategies. Participants will understand how to design and articulate a zero-trust security architecture vision leveraging Cisco’s comprehensive security portfolio, including the Next Generation ASA Firewall services running FirePOWER services and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). Additionally, they will gain a deep understanding on how to align and address the relevant security use cases from Cisco’s IoT Portfolio specific to the Utilities vertical.

Who should attend

Upon completion of Fast Lane’s Internet of Things Security SE Enablement – Utilities Vertical, Cisco security professionals will gain a fundamental understanding on how to develop a zero trust security model within an IT/OT Converged ICS/OT environment, incorporating the very latest in Cisco’s IoT Portfolio of security solutions.
