Validated Architecture Design Review (VADR) Training
The Validated Architecture Design Review (VADR) course is designed to empower students to evaluate Operational Technology systems within Critical Infrastructure networks for secure design and operational intent. The assessment encompasses an architecture and design review, along with an analysis of network traffic to develop a detailed representation of the communications, flows, and relationships between devices designed to identify anomalous (and potentially suspicious) communication flows. The VADR course verifies that successful students have the capability to accurately assess the design of the system and to inform organizational leadership how to effectively manage the risk which is inherent in its selected design methods and cybersecurity solutions. The process depends on in-person interviews, documentation reviews and in-depth technical analysis.
