Welcome to the Fundamentals of IEC 62443 Online Training Programme

This 12-week community-based learning programme has been developed in collaboration with IEC 62443 specialists from across the smart grid sector, to ensure that your cyber security teams have all the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to embark on their IEC 62443 journey with confidence.

As an international, horizontal series of standards addressing cybersecurity for operational technology in automation and control systems, IEC 62443 is gaining traction as an indispensable tool for securing people, processes, and technology in converged grid environments. Providing technical and process security for operators, component and system manufacturers, and integration and maintenance service providers, IEC 62443 establishes a common language between IACS stakeholders needed to define and implement risk-based security controls across the entire lifecycle of grid assets and systems.

Programme Highlights:

Overview: Understanding the core components of the IEC 62443 family of standards, and how they can be applied as the basis for securing IACS in grid environments alongside overlapping standards such as the ISO 27000 series

Resilience: Getting to grips with key 62443 resilience concepts, technical requirements, and foundational requirements, then practically applying them to define security levels and implement security controls based on criticality 

Risk Management: Learning how to conduct high level and detailed risk assessment, provide ongoing security lifecycle development, and demonstrate security to regulators and board

Security by Design: Understanding the technical requirements for components and systems, and developing strategies for communicating with your partner ecosystem

Programme Structure:
