Securing the Human for Engineers

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are increasingly popular targets for cyber attacks. ICS automation control, process control, access control devices, system accounts, and asset information all have tremendous value to cybercriminals. More often than not, attempts against ICS environments are not one-off attacks, but are typically part of planned, multi-step strategies encompassing reconnaissance, multiple attack attempts, and continuous adjustments. These campaigns happen over the course of months, requiring system owners and operators to be incredibly vigilant in recognizing when something in their system is not right.

To address this need, CIS is proud to partner with the SANS Institute to offer our members Securing the Human for Engineers (STH.Engineer). STH.Engineer provides the complete training solution you need to ensure that your employees and contractors who access and interact with the control systems that run your industrial infrastructure are effectively equipped to confront the data security problems and threats that uniquely affect ICS.


STH.Engineer offers a comprehensive data security awareness program for ICS engineers and operators that specifically targets what is often the weakest link in security: the human.

  • Engineer includes specially designed training modules precisely tailored to the distinctive cybersecurity needs of ICS environments.
  • This program is specially developed with industry leaders and experts to assist organizations in meeting industry compliance requirements through continued training and standard reporting.
  • The program consists of 12 specifically designed modules covering a wide range of topics related to ICS security, including attack approaches, ICS environment defense, and incident response.
  • This unique program provides flexible online training that your staff can complete on their own schedule, at their own pace, and from the comfort of their own workstation.
  • You can now purchase STH.Engineer through CIS at a dramatically discounted rate.
