There have been a lot of articles about SCADA vulnerabilities lately – probably because this is an area that security researchers have traditionally not been focusing on. (Vulnerable) SCADA systems continue to help manage the nation’s critical infrastructure. This has been recognized by the federal government and as a response, the Obama administration had issued an executive order for improving critical infrastructure cybersecurity. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework can be used as a foundation for building your security program for protecting critical infrastructure.

If you are responsible for security of industrial control systems and/or SCADA, you should read the NIST framework document. Or contact us – we have SCADA security review/audit experience.
