There are significant concerns regarding the lack of proficient cybersecurity professionals with a background in both Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). To alleviate this problem, we propose an open and flexible laboratory for experimenting with an IT/OT infrastructure and the related cybersecurity problems, such as emulating attacks and understanding how they work and how they could be identified and mitigated. We also report our experience in using the laboratory during a one-week training event with 24 students from 7 different high-schools at the mechatronics prototyping facility ProM in Rovereto (Italy).

Abstract

There are significant concerns regarding the lack of proficient cybersecurity professionals with a background in both Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). To alleviate this problem, we propose an open and flexible laboratory for experimenting with an IT/OT infrastructure and the related cybersecurity problems, such as emulating attacks and understanding how they work and how they could be identified and mitigated. We also report our experience in using the laboratory during a one-week training event with 24 students from 7 different high-schools at the mechatronics prototyping facility ProM in Rovereto (Italy).
