Securing control systems with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA): SCADA software, part of many industrial control systems, can use the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework for cyber security.
In 2014, the NEC was revised in multiple areas. Changes to Paragraph 240.87 have made compliance simpler and less expensive.
As attacks on industrial control systems (ICSs) become more frequent and increasingly sophisticated, defensive strategies must evolve to keep up. Fortunately, the tools are getting better. See related video.
Intrusion detection software (IDS) for the IoT: What’s the point of protecting your embedded devices if you can’t tell if they are under attack? Why intrusion detection software is essential for web-connected devices.
Cyber security: Exploring some of the technical concepts will help an end user understand and prevent security flaws when creating SCADA and HMI software applications and the underlying networks architectures.
