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.

Absolutely horrible. I quickly realized high school upgrading classes are for people who recently took the class and wanted get better grades. It’s been 20 yrs since I was in school and was hoping to learn something but the teachers only wanted to talk soccer. I tried multiple times to get help from my teacher and was told to get a tutor. I paid a lot of money and took a lot of my time to take this course only to realize I’ve been duped. That the teacher in the class isn’t there to help but to fill a seat with a warm butt. I complained and tried to get my money back but it was too late they said. And being behind with a teacher who won’t teach or help…I dropped out and the experience stopped me from taking any education classes. I only wish when I called to sign up that sait wouldn’t lie to you but say “it’s only to refresh if you just took the course last term. Don’t expect to be taught anything but the latest soccer scores.”

I took the Engineering Design and Drafting Technology program. The education was second to none. I would highly recommend SAIT to anyone
