Securing Industrial IoT Networks with Cisco Technologies (ISECIN)



This course provides an overview of the IoT enabled industrial verticals (manufacturing, energy, O&G, utilities, process control), architectures, and IIoT security requirements, frameworks, and regulations. Security protocols, vulnerabilities, and the process of securing against the vulnerabilities are examined in depth and practiced in the hands-on lab environment.


  • Security Engineer
  • Security Operations
  • Security Analysts
  • Systems, Solutions Architects
  • System Integrators
  • Senior OT Engineers


It is highly recommended to have the following skills and knowledge before attending this course:

  • IP Networking Basics: INICS, ICND1 equivalent
  • OT Networking Basics: ICINS, IMINS or IMINS2
  • Network Security Basics: IINS or CCNA Security equivalent

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the convergent enterprise and industrial IoT architecture, components and applications
  • Contrast enterprise IT vs. industrial OT security
  • Define layered security requirements from the network edge to the core, and from access to applications layer
  • Protect endpoints, communications as well as data at rest and in motion
  • Compliance to standards and regulations and auditing
  • Understand protocols, applications and IPv6 for IIoT
  • Identify vulnerabilities and threat
  • Familiarize with common implementation issues
  • Assess, monitor and detect vulnerabilities
  • Walk through IIoT attacks
