Introduction to Industry 4.0 is a program designed to introduce to the participants about the key design principles and components of the new revolution, its key challenges, and the new potential opportunities for the entire value chain of the implementation. In the current industry environment, providing high-end quality service or product with the least cost is the key to success and industrial factories are trying to achieve as much performance as possible to increase their profit as well as their reputation. In this way, various data sources are available to provide worthwhile information about different aspects of the factory. In this stage, the utilization of data for understanding current operating conditions and detecting faults and failures is an important topic to research. In contrast, in an Industry 4.0 factory, in addition to condition monitoring and fault diagnosis, components and systems are able to gain self-awareness and self-predictive, which will provide management with more insight on the status of the factory.


By the end of the course, participants will be able to understand how the system integration works between various aspects of the Industry 4.0 which include Supply Chain, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Additive Manufacturing, Autonomous Robot, Augmented Reality, Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and Horizontal & Vertical Integration. Participants will also be introduced to the basic understanding of each pillar which include its working principles, benefits, pro and cons, and key challenges.

This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. Depending on the size of the organization, this individual may act alone or may be a member of a cybersecurity incident response team (CSIRT).

The course introduces tools and tactics to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization's security, collect and analyse cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. Ultimately, the course promotes a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defence.

This course is designed to assist students in preparing for the CyberSec First Responder (Exam CFR-210) certification examination. What you learn and practice in this course can be a significant part of your preparation.

This course is designed primarily for cybersecurity practitioners who perform job functions related to protecting information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation.

This course focuses on the knowledge, ability, and skills necessary to provide for the defence of those information systems in a cybersecurity context, including protection, detection, analysis, investigation, and response processes. In addition, the course ensures that all members of an IT team—from help desk staff to the Chief Information Officer—understand their roles in these security processes
