It is difficult to imagine day-to-day industrial operations without Ethernet connections. From large-scale environment to the smallest Industrial Ethernet communication network, nearly everything has come to dependency on the overall systems reliability and security. The opportunities on the one hand are countered by risks on the other hand. Access by outsiders or manipulations in the network always has catastrophic consequences on application or on in-house expertise. Therefore, functioning security systems are an absolute must.
During the course you will become familiar with the knowledge necessary to apply concepts mandated by common security standards. The course does not just cover theoretical security concepts, it also provides the opportunity to implement these concepts through practical hands-on exercises.
At the end of this course, participants will understand the requirements and fundamentals needed to plan, implement, and provide support for industrial security measures.

Knowledge according to course "Ethernet Fundamentals in Industrial Networks":
Participants shall have basic knowledge of Ethernet and should be familiar with network topologies, Media Access Control (MAC), Internet Protocol, data transport and associated technical vocabulary. It is also helpful if you are familiar with the principles of operation of switches, hubs and the OSI reference model.
Participants are encouraged to attend the "Switching and Routing in Industrial Networks with RUGGEDCOM" training course.
After the training course, you have the opportunity to become certified as "Siemens Certified Professional for Industrial Networks - Security". A voluntary certification examination takes place at the end of this training. As an option, the examination may be taken at a later time.
Please note that before the examination you have to identify yourself by showing a valid photo identification.
