SIS’ industry-leading industrial cyber security training was able to help a metals manufacturer create a stronger culture of security, harmonising with the organisation’s rigorous safety culture, fostering a commitment to industrial cyber security from plant operators and administrators, encouraging users to act responsibly and thus operate more securely.
Lax security culture and lack of awareness of cyber threats can often be the weakest link in an organisation’s cyber defence strategy. A greater understanding of the importance of industrial cyber security amongst not only Operational Technology (OT) engineers, but also IT professionals and senior management, helps to create a unified team that collectively has the required skills to manage risks to acceptable levels.
A metals manufacturer was seeking instructor-led industrial cyber security training for operational personnel after identifying a skills shortage, and general lack of awareness of the cyber security implications of individuals in their day-to-day roles. The key objective for the manufacturer was to create a stronger culture of security, harmonising with the organisation’s rigorous safety culture, fostering a commitment to industrial cyber security from plant operators and administrators, encouraging users to act responsibly and thus operate more securely.
SIS has been at the forefront of industrial cyber security awareness and educational training over the last decade, with courses leading to SIS’ own certification, for competent personnel.
The goal in delivering industrial cyber security training for this metals manufacturer was to not only raise awareness of threats, but to change the behaviour of personnel whereby the importance of security is harmonised with that of the culture of safety. Building a culture of security competence motivates employees, contractors, third-parties, and the community, to improve their behaviours and incorporate security concerns into their decision making.
SIS’ distinguished instructors shared their industry experiences with plant operators and IT administrators, complementing the training with practical, real-world scenarios, describing proven solutions to common industry problems that have been effectively implemented.
Developed in-house, and continually refined to stay ahead of today’s emerging threat landscape, SIS’ course content shares common formatting, ensuring a universal language throughout, that reinforces key security awareness messages that communicates and motivates individuals to adopt security policies and procedures and best practices to secure critical assets.
