Threats in the form of cyber attacks on the industrial environment of companies are constantly increasing and represent a major threat, but also a challenge for so-called OT (Operational Technology) security. It is therefore becoming increasingly important that the availability of machines and systems can still be ensured. PILZ, a global supplier of products, systems and services for automation technology headquartered in Ostfildern, Germany, has developed the "CESA - Certified Expert for Security in Automation" qualification specifically to meet these challenges.

One of the prerequisites for qualifying as a "CESA" is the correct application of the IEC 62443 standard, which enables operators, integrators and manufacturers to prove that their industrial automation systems comply with modern cyber security standards. In order to learn which specific requirements must be met for this and what needs to be taken into account during implementation, the Swabians are holding seminars specially tailored to the IEC 62443 standard, which will take place over two days in April and October 2024 respectively.

These training courses are aimed in particular at manufacturers, integrators and users of industrial automation systems as well as plant engineers, information security officers (ISB) and project engineers. Admission to the "CESA - Certified Expert for Security in Automation" requires professional experience and basic knowledge of the subject area.

Upon passing the final multiple-choice test, participants receive the globally recognized TÜV-NORD certificate for "CESA - Certified Expert for Security in Automation". The certificate is valid for four years and can then be extended for a further four years by participating in the recertification process.
