When it comes to the security of SCADA installations, it’s clear that not only calculated threats must be prevented. Those in charge of creating and operating automation in plants may not be fully aware of the complete infrastructure and software in place. Without good standards to curb operator error, poor maintenance, and update procedures, the system’s reliability and stability will be affected. That could lead to a non-intentional virus or create the opportunity for a virus with vicious intent. So how can you identify the potential threats to security and avoid them?
