Security in Industrial Networks with RUGGEDCOM (IK-SECIN-R)

  • 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.


  • In this course participants will be shown numerous ways to improve the protection from attacks, espionage, and manipulations. 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 maintain industrial security measures.
