How to Secure Your SCADA System

Learn cyberattack mitigation techniques and intrusion detection methods that can help protect your control system devices and network.

The security of critical infrastructure is essential to ensuring the safe, reliable services that society relies on for daily life. Without security, the services provided could be disrupted. Industrial control systems (ICSs) are responsible for safe and reliable operation of these services; they’re the backbone of the electric power system, water and gas systems, and manufacturing and production systems. It’s imperative that these systems be built and maintained with security in mind.

While the protection and security of physical assets are important, the threat of an availability loss is equally crucial. A loss of availability is a loss of revenue and could lead to a significant impact to an organization. Therefore, when planning for security, it’s important to recognize both tangible and intangible assets.
