ICS Cybersecurity certification/specialization advice needed


By the end of 2019 I graduated in Electrical Engineering with a decent (theorical) knowledge of Control Systems and Computer Networks. 4 months after that, I got an entry level (trainee) Engineering job offer to work with ICS Cybersecurity in the oil & gas field.

One year later, I feel that some sort specialization would suit me very well, like a MSc in the area. I’ve done my research here in this sub and found very little information on this subject… to summarize, this is what I found so far:

* [SANS ICS410](https://www.sans.org/cyber-security-courses/ics-scada-cyber-security-essentials/)
* [CISA ISA trainings](https://us-cert.cisa.gov/ics/Training-Available-Through-ICS-CERT#top)
* [Georgia Tech MSc in Cybersecurity with a Cyber-Physical Systems Track](https://pe.gatech.edu/degrees/cybersecurity)

*Note: I also found a couple post graduation courses in my home country (Brazil) not worth linking here since it’s in Portuguese.*

I would like to hear your recommendations on MSc/MBA/certifications options that would be relevant for my career in ICS Cybersecurity.

Thank you all in advance!

Why reduce the scope to ICS Cybersecurity or did I misunderstand?

I completed a MSc in Cybersecurity from Western Governors University. ICS/SCADA was a small part of the program, but Cybersecurity is a wide subject area.
