Course Description


This Protecting Critical National Infrastructure training course focuses on increasing the resilience of critical services and highlights the requirement to secure not only information systems, but the technologies that are relied upon to operate essential services. The critical infrastructure also known as cyber physical systems, industrial control systems (ICS) or operational technology (OT) as their disruption or failure can impact the nation as a whole, cost millions even billions, with potentially severe consequences.

The training course focuses on sector specific agencies, other national agencies, as well as private sector and presents the framework to share information on and analysis of cyber threats and vulnerabilities and to understand more fully the interdependency of infrastructure systems nationwide. This collective approach to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, investigate, and recover from cyber incidents prioritizes understanding and meeting the needs of everyone within the nation.

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • The concept and characteristics of Critical National Infrastructure in different countries
  • The nature of risks and threats to Critical National Infrastructure
  • Framework for protection of Critical National Infrastructure and key resources
  • Case studies in Critical National Infrastructure targeting and responses
  • Comparative analysis of Critical National Infrastructure protection
  • Risk mitigation and resilience of Critical National Infrastructure
  • Understanding emerging threats and risks


At the end of this Protecting Critical National Infrastructure training course, you will learn to:

  • To develop knowledge and understanding of the nature and vulnerabilities
  • Learn how to defend from attacks and plots targeting Critical National Infrastructure
  • Acquire analytical skills to critically research, evaluate and assess policies and measures
