Level 1 - Starting the Analysis. Be Careful. Working With Data Sets. Third Party Remote Access.
Level 2 – Downloads. OT Environment Analysis
Level 3 – Config. FTP. File. Boot.
Level 4 - PLC. Programs instantiated.
Such events are of paramount importance in the system of training specialists in specialty 125 Cybersecurity, because at these competitions cadets clearly understand the risks and problems that are inherent in the objects of critical information infrastructure of the state.
Cadets have a deeper understanding of the meaning and functionality of a cybersecurity specialist, unlike other specialties. During the competition, participants understand all the necessary skills that a cybersecurity specialist needs, learn to make quick and reasonable decisions based on the knowledge gained during their studies at the Institute.
Cadets Oleksandr Karpyshynets, Mariia Romanovska, Pavlo Chornyi, Anton Samoiliuk supported their comrades.
This was another step in acquiring cybersecurity capabilities by cadets and employees of the Cybersecurity Department. We wish our boys and girls good health and new achievements.
