Secure IT architectures and developments - 2020

Vulnerable points and security of industrial systems (ICS) and SCADA


This course is intended for learners with an interest in Industrial Information Systems or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

It provides information on the vulnerabilities and the cybersecurity risks of these systems and the means implemented to protect them.


The course lasts 2 days, a total of 14 hours, and includes 2 parts:

  • A theoretical part that represents about 80% of the course
  • A practical part that represents about 20% of the course.


The security of Industrial Information Systems (IIS) is now the focus of the companies who are affected by them, especially after the numerous incidents that have occurred, including Stuxnet.

These systems enable direct action to be taken in the physical world using instructions from the "logical" world to manage the production tools of many companies.

Beyond environmental and human risks, they also represent a strategic challenge for countries. The recent proliferation of incidents therefore requires mobilization to secure them and to bring about a transformation.

This mobilization is particularly true in France, where the ANSSI (National Cybersecurity Agency of France) has identified this subject as one of its priorities and has published numerous frameworks on this subject.

The question being asked today is we begin to address all these technical, organizational and safety issues.


Course level: Basic

This course is intended for all learners with an understanding of the basic principles of IS. Familiarity with ISS is an advantage.
