A Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) network is the most critical layer in an Industrial Control System (ICS). An ICS is responsible for monitoring and controlling the critical infrastructure for systems such as waste-water treatment plants, power plants, electrical grids, dams, gas and oil pipelines, and systems controlling mass transportation.
Historically, SCADA networks are considered to be immune from cyber-attacks because the operating knowledge was esoteric and the system was never exposed to Internet traffic. However, ICS and SCADA systems have been modernized to meet the needs of the communities they serve.
Organizations utilizing ICS/SCADA networks have also learned that they are no longer esoteric warehouses, due to highly publicized malware incidents such as Stuxnet, Duqu, and Flame. Future attacks on this industry are sure to occur again due to the growing number of cyber threats present in today’s environment. All ICS/SCADA components, including Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI), and Remote Terminal Units (RTU), are at an elevated level of risk.
