The availability and security of many services we rely upon—including water treatment, electricity, healthcare, transportation, and financial transactions—are routinely put at risk by cyber threats. The Handbook of SCADA/Control Systems Security is a fundamental outline of security concepts, methodologies, and relevant information pertaining to the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and technology that quietly operate in the background of critical utility and industrial facilities worldwide.
Divided into five sections, the book examines topics comprising functions within and throughout industrial control systems (ICS) environments. Topics include:
The final chapters outline the data relied upon for accurate processing, discusses emerging issues with data overload, and provides insight into the possible future direction of ISC security.
The book supplies crucial information for securing industrial automation/process control systems as part of a critical infrastructure protection program. The content has global applications for securing essential governmental and economic systems that have evolved into present-day security nightmares. The authors present a "best practices" approach to securing business management environments at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels.

"I wish that each SCADA developer read this book while developing the software, as the focus on functionality is remarkable in this collection. It explains in an easy way what happens when ‘there are some security and reliability issues around’ and what should be remembered so that it does not appear again. Every aspect is well described with clear examples."
