Pages 16

SCADA systems, by design, tie topographically several decentralized facilities such as power plants and stations, oil reneries, water distribution, and wastewater treatment systems. e move from proprietary black box technologies to a more open platform, has facilitated connectivity and interoperability with SCADA systems, oce,

and the Internet, but unfortunately it makes SCADA a big attraction for cyberterrorism. e U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) released a vulnerability advisory document cautioning users to observe strict access management. Consequently, the security of some SCADA-based systems has come into question as they are seen as potentially vulnerable to cyberattacks.
