CESA - Certified Expert for Security in Automation


Threats in the form of cyber attacks on a company's industrial environment are constantly on the rise and represent a huge threat, as well as a challenge for OT (operational technology) safety. That's why it's becoming increasingly more important that the availability of plant and machinery can nonetheless be guaranteed. The "CESA - Certified Expert for Security in Automation" qualification is specifically aimed at these challenges.

By applying the standard IEC 62443 correctly, operators, integrators and manufacturers can prove that their industrial automation systems meet modern cybersecurity standards. But what are the specific requirements that need to be met and what must be considered in the implementation? This seminar is tailored specifically to IEC 62443 and will give you the appropriate specialist knowledge.
