ICS/SCADA Security

Attackers do not only target our home PCs or the servers at work. The safety of industrial systems and critical infrastructures has been under threat for a very long time. Industrial control systems (ICS/SCADA) are used in all critical infrastructure such as energy and natural gas, water grids, healthcare systems, railways, air traffic control systems, defense industries, nuclear power plants, and manufacturing facilities, and the concept of “security” emerges as an important concept that should be considered in the design and operation of these systems. In situations where said systems are damaged and become inoperable, large-scale material and moral damages may occur.
