TI Safe Academy

Training in Industrial Automation Safety (FSAI)

In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in security incidents in critical infrastructures around the world. The formation fills a market segment with huge demand from industries whose infrastructure is critical for nations. The course is based on the methodology TI Safe ICS.SecurityFramework® and teaches how to apply the best practices of the ANSI / ISA-99 standard (current ISA / IEC 62443) in critical infrastructure industrial environments.

The course is carried out in the format of 20 hours of classes taught at the TI Safe Academy (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) for a minimum group of 10 students (on-demand projects only). It is suitable for IT or Industrial Automation professionals who have knowledge of operating systems, network protocols, programming languages, hardware and software. Knowledge of information security and industrial control systems (ICS) is desirable.

Training Tools

The training materials were prepared in Portuguese and English and distributed in digital format (PDF file). They are constantly updated and improved. One week before the start date of each training, TI Safe will send the data so that enrolled students can download the handout and supporting material from the Internet. It is up to each student to print the handout or take their laptop or tablet to classes with the handout in digital format.

Practical classes and technical demonstrations

During the training, practical classes and technical demonstrations of attacks and defenses against simulated automation networks will be carried out. For the demonstration of attacks against industrial networks, we have a complete laboratory equipped with industrial plant automation network simulators shown in the figure below:
