FSO Cyber Security Training

What is the facility security officer's role in cyber resilience?

Gain an understanding as to how to implement a cyber security program at your facility using the NIST and U.S. Coast Guard Cyber Security Framework. 

Next Course: November 6, 2019 | Location: Port of Galveston

First-in-the-Nation FSO Cyber Security Training 

With increasing cyber attacks against maritime facilities, more emphasis is being placed on the protection of critical information infrastructure within facilities and the Facility Security Officer's (FSO) role in cyber resilience.

Importantly, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and Congress recently issued guidance that calls for cyber security measures to be conducted at facilities through Change 5 to NVIC 09-02 (April 2019) and Draft NVIC 05-17 (2017). Additionally, the Coast Guard has pointed to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF) as a best practice for establishing a cyber security program within a Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) regulated facility.

Join us for a one-day training course focused on cyber security for FSOs and receive instruction on how to effectively implement a cyber security program at your facility using the NIST Cyber Security Framework and how to integrate cyber security into an existing security program. Course participants will learn how to review a cyber security assessment and incorporate a cyber security plan into an existing FSP using skills developed during the course.

What We Cover:

  • Identify Coast Guard guidance and requirements for cyber assessments and planning 
  • Discuss the links between Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) and how vulnerabilities in these networks can affect your physical security
  • Understand the NIST Cyber Security Framework
  • The types of cyber threats face maritime facilities
  • The FSO's role in cyber security
  • Integration of cyber into existing physical security plans and practices
