Abstract:

Currently, our society is experiencing an acute need to ensure the security of critical infrastructures with respect to cyber incidents that can disrupt their normal operation and thus create major socio-economic turmoil and financial loss. Industrial control systems have become the main target for coordinated cybersecurity attacks, and the number of threats has increased with the complexity of the new technologies. Cybersecurity requires both advanced technological solutions and human skills to effectively prevent known threats but also be efficient against unknown vulnerabilities. Consequently, there is a need to train and recognize the professionals that perform cybersecurity activities in order to protect critical infrastructures. This paper presents the introduction of the profession of cybersecurity specialist for automated command-and-control systems in the Romanian Classification of Occupations.
