ENCS held Security Architecture and Operations trainings

ENCS successfully held two trainings in Schiphol at the end of May, marking the first in-person open trainings after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
On May 24 and 25, ENCS held a Security Architecture training with representatives from both member and non-member companies in attendance. Participants learnt how to design risk-based security architectures for Operational Technology (OT) systems by working through four practical cases. The approach taught is based on the ISO 27000 and IEC 62443 standards involving four steps: zoning, conducting a risk assessment, selecting mitigating security measures and evaluating their effectiveness.

On May 31 and June 1, ENCS held a Security Operations training with representatives from member and non-member companies. Participants learnt how to protect the OT domain by choosing and configuring the right monitoring use cases in the adequate sensors and by identifying vulnerabilities and mitigations. They then learnt how to analyse incoming alerts during hands-on exercises with realistic traffic captures and log files.

The rapidly evolving world of cyber security and the exceptionality of OT systems make trainings, such as ENCS’ Security Architecture and Operations trainings, critical for developing the technical capabilities to address the vulnerabilities of today and tomorrow. Grid operators, industry associations and anyone involved in the design of OT systems for smart grids greatly benefit from our hands-on training. This is not merely by learning how to design and implement secure networks, but also by enhancing participants’ cyber security awareness and offering a platform for knowledge sharing.
