All sessions will be recorded. You do not need to commit to attending live sessions. We will take a student consensus and vary dates/times so everyone has a chance to participate in live sessions. Additionally, as this is a live course, the instructor will adapt the course content to the needs and requests of the students!

Clint Bodungen (lead author of Hacking Exposed: Industrial Control Systems, and Co-Founder of ThreatGEN) combines his 25+ years of experience and VERY CANDID approach, to offer this unique, and rare, opportunity to learn directly from him in this live, interactive course.
By the end of the course, students will have gained a clear and comprehensive understanding of the unique challenges and risks faced by Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Operational Technology (OT) cybersecurity (or more appropriately, cyber risk management), and how to solve them realistically and effectively. They will learn to separate fact from fiction, and marketing and hype from actual ICS risks and mitigations. Students will learn about the threat landscape facing ICS/OT systems, how to build and maintain an effective ICS/OT risk management program, proper ICS/OT risk assessment/management, mitigations/safeguards, vulnerability assessment/management that is safe for production environments, incident response planning and management, ICS/OT cybersecurity standards and frameworks (including MITRE ATT&CK), learn how to effectively communicate and collaborate with their IT/OT counterparts.
NOTE: This is not a deep hands-on technical course on PLC programming or technical penetration testing techniques. See the FAQ below, as to why.

ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue End of Course Competition
No. This is not an advanced technical course.
This course focuses on the broader aspects of ICS/OT cyber risk management such as proper risk analysis and prioritization, architecture, most effective safeguards/controls, and overall cyber risk program management. In our experience, those are the most impactful aspects of ICS/OT cyber risk management. Knowing and understanding the more technical aspects are important, but not everyone needs to be at that level of technical expertise.
The term "masterclass" is not a claim to turn students into "masters" or advanced practitioners. In this context, it refers to the fact that there is an industry recognized "master" level practitioner and published author (with a major publisher) with many years of experience (more than 25 years in this case) teaching the course.

If there is enough demand to run this course again, yes.
Yes. At the completion of this course, you will receive a CPE certificate for 10 hours of "instructor led cybersecurity class" cybersecurity CPE credits, along with the list of topics and domains covered in the course.
Yes. Upon completion of this course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
We do not guarantee a "one-for-one" mapping to the GICSP certification, but we will cover all of the same knowledgebase of material as the GICSP. In many cases we will exceed the material requirements. However, since we cannot validate when the GICSP exam was last updated or its accuracy, and we are not "teaching to the exam", we cannot predict how much this course will aid you with the GICSP exam.
