Education initiative by Kaspersky Lab ICS CERT and Fraunhofer IOSB

Kaspersky Lab ICS CERT and Fraunhofer IOSB are working together to address industrial cybersecurity and awareness challenges. Faced with a significant security skills shortage in the field of industrial control systems and operational technology, the provision of quality content for specialists looking to develop their careers has never been more important.

As part of the collaboration, Kaspersky Lab and Fraunhofer IOSB have developed a new training course for IT/OT managers and engineers. The “Advanced Industrial Cybersecurity in Practice” course is based on the combined knowledge and technical expertise of Kaspersky Lab and Fraunhofer IOSB.
