Cyber Security: SCADA Systems
A technical exploration of protecting SCADA, smart grid and real-time systems
30 March 2012 | IET Birmingham: Austin Court
Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) plays a very important role in our daily lives. It is these computer systems that control the operation of our power plants, water treatment plants, transportation systems and other critical industrial systems we use everyday.
As in events in 2010 showed, an insecure SCADA system and subsequent intrusion/hack can have catastrophic consequences. These range from negative impacts on environment, production, finance and all the way to potential human injury.
The next Cyber Security: SCADA Seminar will be held January 2013 (dates to be confirmed).
Find out more about the 2012 seminar.
Which do you prefer? Theory or practice?
This unique seminar will feature a number of live demonstrations and traditional presentations, thereby ensuring that you grasp the finer points of SCADA security and will leave the seminar with the practical knowledge you need to secure your systems.
