    SCADA SCADA is an acronym for ‘Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition’. It can be defined as ‘is a system operating with coded signals over communication channels so as to provide control of remote equipment” SCADA is one of the oldest methods to control data across a network. Unlike many other software’s used in the industry, SCADA can be used in any field, be it in electrical power control, mechanical machinery, civil projects, data managements etc. This versatility means more than one type

  • Communication Networks Linking Smart Grid

    SCADA vulnerabilities Increased communication: Communication networks linking smart grid or any other critical infrastructure devices and systems is creating more access points to the devices, hence chances of being attacked are increasing, Increased complexity: The systems are becoming more complex to understand hence establishing a strong security in the system is becoming a difficult task. Use of shared technology: The SCADA systems are using a major portion of common technologies, these technologies

  • Evaluation Of The Systems Functions, Vulnerabilities, And Protection

    1181 Words  | 5 Pages

    SCADA Systems is considered a vital aspect of Critical Infrastructures, which is tied to all other Critical Infrastructures. In the modern age where automation is emerging as a normal part of daily function, the need for a system to monitor and control these automated processes is required. While automation yields an overabundance of benefits such as reduced operating costs and efficiency, it is not without flaws. SCADA Systems are like any other program in the sense that it is vulnerable to attacks

    50 percent success rate in finding the oil and natural gas using seismic technology. Discussion point 2: SCADA networks consists of many computers and software’s which performs many tasks and services in the organization or infrastructure which are considered to be backbone of the country which requires major protection from many cyber threats. In industrialized countries, precise census of SCADA systems is absent which is a big concern. Recently Incident Illinois on alleged water facility incident

  • Critical Information Infrastructure Systems Worldwide

    1806 Words  | 8 Pages

    Introduction In modern society, most (if not all) countries have Critical Infrastructure (CI) sectors that manage the security, management and distribution of imperative resources for the survival of the country. Examples of these critical infrastructure sectors are water and sanitation, energy and utilities, transportation and Information Technology Communications among others. Critical Information Infrastructures (CII) systems are used for controlling and managing the respective CI. The critical

    in order to protect their critical infrastructure to keep running on their system. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System Network systems (SCADA), Distributed Control System (DCS) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are examples of controlling their Critical Infrastructure. Because once the hackers are able to gain access to the SCADA Network system and sabotage the system, then the Critical Infrastructure would lead to cyberwar and chaos. Further details about this topic will be
