In order to reduce the risk of contagion and transmission of COVID-19, it is necessary to stay at home. The ideal is to make better use of quarantined time to invest in professional training. A study by McKinsey Consulting pointed out that 80% of the largest companies in the world are already revising their work models due to the crisis. They consider changing the way they work and operate based on the learning of this new dynamic. In addition, the increased operation and remote control of industrial plants - also caused by the need to reduce personal contact - made it necessary to expand the scope of cybersecurity in the industrial environment, which ensures a potential job market for those who are trained. “Industrial cybersecurity is currently one of the areas of greatest demand, going against all other segments of the economy that are laying off or reducing operations. It is an especially promising niche for those who are trained, ”says Marcelo Branquinho, CEO of TI Safe.
Developing new skills and competencies in the cybersecurity area prepares professionals for the opportunities that are now emerging and that will consolidate after the pandemic. According to the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (CISA), the criticality of critical infrastructure operations requires, at this time, technicians working in support, customer service, operations, management systems, control systems and supervisory and data acquisition, systems and entity data centers, cybersecurity engineers and cybersecurity risk management.
To enable this professional type with all the necessary tools and knowledge, TI Safe launched a new Distance Learning program (EAD) with a focus on Training in Industrial Automation Security.
Thiago Branquinho, CTO at TI Safe, explains that the new EAD has more content and resources. “They are updated videos with the most emerging themes on industrial cyber security, references to expand the presentation of classes, models of documents that will help in the implementation of security, access to an exclusive TI Safe community with our team and alumni of the course and tests to validate the knowledge acquired ”, details Thiago.
The online course has the same content and certificate as the classroom and the training is divided into five modules:
- Risks and Planning;
- Attacks and Countermeasures.
One of the main advantages of online training is the convenience of registering, completing and completing the course entirely at the professional's residence, which is important in this period of need for social distance. The flexibility of schedule allows him to study the modules when it is most convenient and better manage his time.
