Joe Weiss recently reported on the possible hacking of a public water SCADA system, apparently in Illinois. This attack, if it was an attack, caused damage to a pump by turning it on and off repeatedly.
It seems obvious that this situation is going to be repeating itself more and more. If you’re a company with industrial control systems, or you provide control system services, now’s a great time to start thinking about your control system security strategy. Do you have the necessary skills on staff? If not, where are you going to source them from?
