The Cyber Security for Control Systems post-diploma certificate program addresses the business risks specific to securing control systems in sectors such as drilling and well sites, power plants, power grid, water plants, manufacturing, production lines, telecommunications, and hospitals.

Many of these systems were previously analog-based, but are currently networked and digital, placing them at greater risk for cyber-attacks. Many of the concepts will be similar to those used to secure information in technology systems, but the training will focus on the specific constraints of securing control systems in the industrial environment.

It is applicable to employees of organizations relying on technology, whether their cybersecurity focus is on information technology (IT), industrial control systems (ICS), cyber-physical systems (CPS), or connected devices more generally, including the Internet of Things (IoT). Thus, while this program is focused on graduates who can improve cybersecurity risk management in control system environments, it can be used by graduates in many organizations – regardless of size, degree of cybersecurity risk, or cybersecurity sophistication – to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improve safety, reliability, security and resilience of these systems.

This is an intensive program requiring a commitment of both time and energy; students who experience success are those who make their education a priority throughout the program. The ideal candidate for the Cyber Security for Control Systems post-diploma certificate has a previous post-secondary diploma or degree and has education and/or work experience in industrial systems (SCADA, PLCs, Instrumentation, etc.) and/or computer networking or related fields.

Hands down a world class experience from a world class institution. I’ve been at sait for 4 years of training and I’m going to miss it with my heart and soul when I am done. My instructors have been the best teachers I’ve ever had. The skills I’ve acquired and the people I’ve met have re defined me as a person. There’s simply nowhere better in western Canada to educate yourself when it comes to the trades. I’m a mechanical trade and the level experience and training provided by the labs, shops and classes given by sait is simply second to none. If you take your education and self improvement seriously, SAIT IS FOR YOU!!!!

The Electrician program saved me a lot of grunt work. Compared to pre-employment graduates or people who start apprenticeships without work experience, you are basically jumping the line. Really good instructors and so many relationships with companies that you're going to get a good job out of this program if you do the work. I had a retail job in Calgary until I was 23, which is when I decided I wanted to challenge myself and start a new career. Looking back, I wish I started at SAIT sooner!
