Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP)
GISCP - A unique and vendor-neutral ICS security certification ICSP (Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional) is the newest certification in the GIAC family and focuses on the essential knowledge of securing critical infrastructure assets. GICSP is the only certification in the world that explicitly focuses on the cyber security aspects of Industrial Control Systems (ICS). GICSP is a certification for engineers, ICS security professionals and ICS technology specialists.
This unique, vendor-neutral, practitioner-focused Industrial Control System (ICS) security certification is a collaborative effort between GIAC and representatives from a global industry consortium involving organisations that design, deploy, operate and/or maintain industrial automation and control system infrastructure. The consortium of organisations collaboratively established an open Body of Knowledge of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) security, which lays the foundations for the certification framework and associated competency training program.
Why this training and certification? Numerous incidents have shown that Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) could be vulnerable to cyber attacks and that such attacks can lead to disruption of physical systems and networks. This makes security for IACS an important part of Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP). This GICSP training is a great introduction to the IACS landscape and associated security concerns.
