Online Courses Industrial Security

The increasing digitalization of industrial production facilities within the framework of Industrie 4.0 and IIoT requires manufacturers, integrators, and operators to deal with security in the production environment. Industrial security is necessary to ensure the permanently safe and reliable operation of networked systems. Technology is not only about technical solutions; it is complemented by processes, and human behavior and this is an enormous implementation task. Employees and technical experts need to be trained on a broad scale.

We offer a comprehensive range of courses on industrial security. This includes basic concepts and concerns of the relevant IEC 62443 standard, as well as very concrete recommendations for action, explanations of technical principles and practical examples. Functional safety and the EU DSGVO are also addressed.

A large number of companies and technical experts have contributed to the creation of these courses including members of the industrial security working group of the VDMA, Siemens, Rhebo, Goethe University Frankfurt, HiSolutions, Pepperl+Fuchs.
