The GICSP Certification was created to define a minimum set of knowledge and capabilities that professionals should have about the cyber security of an ICS (Industrial Control System) environment. The certification is a collaborative effort between GIAC and representatives from a global industry consortium involving organizations that design, deploy, operate and/or maintain industrial automation and control system infrastructure. Would you like to become GICSP certified? We can help you prepare for the exam by providing a 3 day course and self-study materials.
