CYB-523 Protective Security Controls in Utility Systems and Networks

In this course students will learn how to identify, develop, and apply security controls in utility information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments with a focus on protective security controls. These controls are implemented to mitigate inherent risks and reduce the chances of utility systems being compromised. Such controls include identity and access management, awareness and training, asset management, secure network architecture and segmentation, secure coding practices, personnel security, and physical security. Students will use risk-based frameworks, regulations, standards, best practices, and security control catalogs to identify and select applicable protective controls in utility environments.
