InfraGard Los Angeles and CT Watch, Inc. present Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA) & Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Vulnerabilities Webinar.
***There are 4.5 ASIS credits available for this course
According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), there are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. In this course we will examine the unique threats and vulnerabilities in these sectors, specifically taking an in-depth look at Insider Threat and all that it encompasses.

*We will have an opening brief from the FBI Headquarters Cyber Division on Cyber Threats and the Water Sector.
