Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional

Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional

The GICSP is the newest certification in the GIAC family and focuses on the foundational knowledge of securing critical infrastructure assets. The GICSP bridges together IT, engineering and cybersecurity to achieve security for industrial control systems from design through retirement.

This unique vendor-neutral, practitioner focused industrial control system 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. GICSP will assess a base level of knowledge and understanding across a diverse set of professionals who engineer or support control systems and share responsibility for the security of these environments.

GICSP will be leveraged across industries to ensure a minimum set of knowledge and capabilities that an IT, Engineer, and Security professional should know if they are in a role that could impact the cybersecurity of an ICS environment.

The GICSP will be available in late November. Pre-registration will begin in mid September. If you have any questions regarding the GICSP certification, please write to info@giac.org.
