Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs) integrate computing, networking, and physical processes. CPSs are known for their ability to: a) monitor the physical environment; b) use the monitored data in detecting the state of the physical environment; c) control the physical environment; and d) use cyber communications to perform its monitoring, detection and control operations. One of the biggest challenges to these systems is the security of its cyber space. This course will cover topics in CPS applications, design issues, and security.
The materials within this course focus on the Knowledge Skills and Abilities (KSAs) identified within the Specialty Areas listed below. Click to view Specialty Area details within the interactive National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework.
