Industrial Cybersecurity

Learn all about Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity & Get Certified!

Learn via this easy online software based training course now.

Dear Friend,
You are here, reading this page, because you are well aware of the crucial role of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (such as DCS/PLC/SCADA/SIS and others) in manufacturing plants (including chemical process plants, Oil & Gas facilities),  in critical infrastructure applications (such as the Electrical Grid, pipelines, power generation , water distribution other utilities), Building Automation Systems, Transportation (think Railway signaling systems, ship control systems and so on) and many other places.

Today the biggest threats facing these systems is from the cyber domain. When many of these systems were designed and built, nobody expected that they would be the attractive targets they are today for all kinds of malicious entities including general hackers, cyber criminals, malware makers, industrial espionage agents, non state actors wishing to disrupt supply chains, state actors who wish to pursue hostile actions through covert means, hacktivists (hackers who are also environmental and other activists) and many others.

When these people target and attack your DCS/PLC/SIS/SCADA then you may not only

  • Lose your Intellectual Property (stealing batch recipes, setpoints, process data, production figures, yield ratios)
  • Put your Assets at risk (the hacked systems may execute unwanted actions that can cause loss of assets)
  • Unable to prevent them from Triggering disasters like loss of containment, environmental releases and explosions
  • Damage your organization's reputation
  • Ruin your organizations market capitalization
  • Run afoul of the law that mandates that you are responsible


Most companies have realized this and seek to employ only those individuals who are qualified in this important subject. The fastest way of learning this AND getting certified is by accessing this software based training course.

Companies have realized that negligence (or ignorance), in respect of Industrial Cybersecurity can be really disastrous, literally.

Just get this interactive, self paced training course today and for a fraction of the price that you would otherwise pay for a classroom training course, learn everything that you wanted to know about SIS (but didn't know whom to ask). Note that this course is

  • NOT a Powerpoint Presentation

  • NOT an ebook

  • NOT a video of a guy speaking

It is a comprehensive, software based learning program that combines interactive animations and simulations, real life examples & situations from plants, an explanation of all difficult to understand terms in very easy language, a self assessment test and much more. It is a unique learning experience and we daresay that it is the only such program today in the world.

Of course, you could always pass this up and decide to go for that seminar or classroom training, whenever that is offered , or buy a book on this topic, or try to surf the internet or lurk around in LinkedIn groups hoping to know more

but,

remember that any of the following things can happen.....

a) this low price will not last for long

b) you will forget all about this, till the time comes for you to explain to somebody higher up, as to why you did not yet do a Cyber Risk Assessment of your Industrial Control System

c) You may waste a lot of time searching for online information, sometimes put there by vested interests (probably some might be the same vendors, who sold you your present insecure control system!) or come across a online group that has members who are only half knowledgeable about the subject and hence spread a lot of disinformation. (NOTE: Abhisam is NOT a vendor of Industrial Control or Automation Systems, so we do not have any vested interest in a particular technology, we have your interests foremost in mind, this course is completely unbiased and vendor neutral, unlike some of those sales pitches out there, that are disguised as "free" ebooks and training courses)

d) You forget about this course completely. Then you enroll yourself in an expensive classroom course, travel halfway around the globe to attend it, spend some more of your undernourished training budget on it and then forget whatever you learned when the time comes to finally apply the concepts learned in your work.

e) You decide to skip this offer and opt to buy a book (or books) on this topic. However, there are a couple of problems. The first is that not a single book is available on the market, that covers all the topics that you need to know. On the other hand, there are a lot of things in every book, that you can safely skip, without missing anything. Thus, if you wish to source your knowledge of Safety Instrumented Systems from books, you will have to buy not one, but several. They also cost a pretty penny (are not cheap at all). The cost of just two of them will be more than the price of this course.

So, why don't you simply get this first of its kind training course on Industrial Cybersecurity and

a) Be assured that you have the best course in a unique format with easy to understand ANIMATIONS & SIMULATIONS that make learning this topic fun and easy! Remove all the complexity and confusion that is normally associated with this topic. See how easy it is once you go through the course.

b) Save your biggest resource right now-your time! Don't fool around gathering information and lurking in countless LinkedIn Groups or Control Systems forums, where you will get nuggets of information that may or may not make sense. Meanwhile your Control System becomes more and more vulnerable!

c) Take our online exam and get Certified for FREE (on passing). Yes, there's no extra charge for this. PLUS very soon, get yourself an electronic badge too, that you can display on your LinkedIn or Facebook profile! This shows the world (including potential recruiters, potential employers and clients) that you are skilled in this subject.

So Go ahead and BUY IT. Still unsure?

Comparable classroom courses, from other providers, cost in the range on thousands of dollars. There are also some so called online courses from some other service providers (they are just their stale powerpoint presentations from some earlier classes), but they are available in Modules  Plus you never know which modules you need, so you either end up buying a few and remaining still unsure about the subject OR you end up buying ALL and spend much more.

So GET this course and also take our FREE online exam that results in a Certificate of Competency, on passing, that you can show to your current or prospective employers or clients.
