With increased connectivity and complexity within industrial organizations, an effective cyber security strategy for operational environments requires common understanding of best practices, awareness of emerging threats and attention to existing vulnerabilities.

Along those lines, Wurldtech launched online courses that provide the knowledge necessary for OT-specific cyber security to help industrial organizations become more resilient in the face of cyber threats.

The full schedule of self-paced courses enables participants to acquire cyber security skills without taking time away from their existing responsibilities and job tasks. The courses are for operators and IT security professionals, with a focus on actionable learning, not just theory.

For example, through the three series, including introductory, intermediate and advanced industrial security levels, those taking the course will be able to recognize and respond to cyber threats targeted at industrial control systems (ICS) and SCADA networks. As threats become more persistent and advanced, training tailored to the industrial cyber landscape will help companies meet the growing need for new skills, and drive better awareness around OT-specific security requirements for both operators of assets and IT security professionals.
