PROTECT SCADA SYSTEMS FROM CYBER–ATTACKS
The utilities industry – electric power, water, and waste treatment – is a target for cyber–attacks with potentially devastating effects in the event of a prolonged outage.
Utilities providers need to protect critical infrastructure from attacks, as well as prevent valuable intellectual property from being stolen. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are the backbone of utilities networks, but often contain critical vulnerabilities and lack basic security controls. Increasingly, SCADA devices are connected to the internet, further increasing the risk of an attack.
Average number of security incidents detected per day by utilities companies in 2014, a six–fold increase over 2013.
