This online course consists of five modules as described and illustrated below.
Module 1: IT and OT Networks
This module aims to provide a clear understanding of the comparisons and contrasts between IT and OT.
Participants will identify both the physical and digital connections between a network, while understanding the security threats, with an emphasis on OT.
Module 2: Network Segmentation
This module aims to provide a clear understanding of network segmentation and firewalls.
Participants will identify the principles of OT segmentation and OT applications in segments and gain an understanding of network zones and different segmentation approaches, both their advantages and disadvantages.
Module 3: Removable Media
This module aims to provide a clear understanding of Removable Media Management. During this module we will define and identify the types of removal media.
Progression through this module will introduce the usage, storage and transport of Removable Media. We will also examine viruses and their potential impact in loss or theft of data in removable media.
Module 4: Portable Device Management
This module will provide a clear understanding of Portable Device Management by demonstrating general physical and digital security techniques to protect Portable devices.
Participants will gain an understanding of how portable devices are necessary to minimize cyber security risk to the OT environment.
To ensure precautionary measures against Cybersecurity threats, we will also examine viruses and their potential impact in loss or theft of data in Portable Devices.
Module 5: Management of OT VLANs and IP Addressing
This module will provide a clear understanding of OT VLANs by demonstrating their benefits to the work process and the overall need for OT VLANs.
Participants will gain an understanding of IP addressing through analysis of IP Subnet Ranges, Default Gateways, and Subnet Masks.
We will also detail the key role responsibilities within the workflow for the creation, modification and deletion of VLAN in an OT Infrastructure.
A hands-on activity allows participants to test the VLAN environment and implement learned skills.
