SCADA Security for the Petroleum Industry
London, United Kingdom

This two-day course is designed for participants interested in developing an understanding of the issues and technologies that can reasonably ensure a secure and safe operating environment for their SCADA networked systems. The course will make recommendations on how participants may address the dual threats posed by open architecture networks (i.e. the Internet revolution) and the global concern about hostile threats to our critical infrastructure. A working (but not necessarily expert) understanding of SCADA operating principles is required. A complete set of course materials and lunches are provided.

Course Outline
Traditional Security Models
Case Histories - Security Breaches
Open Systems Vulnerabilities
Diverse Access Points in Industrial Systems
Encryption Principles and Application
Firewalls and Perimeter Security
Virtual Private Networks and Virtual LANs
Access and Authorization: Managing Users
