Towards Developing SCADA Systems Security Measures for Critical Infrastructures against Cyber-Terrorist Attacks

Abstract : Security is essential in protecting confidential data, especially in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems which monitor and control national critical infrastructures, such as energy, water and communications. Security controls are implemented to prevent attacks that could destroy or damage critical infrastructures. Previous critical infrastructure surveys point out the gaps in knowledge, including the lack of coordination between sectors, inadequate exchange of information, less awareness and engagement in government critical infrastructure protection (CIP) programs. Consequently, private sector and government organizations feel less prepared. This paper highlights existing vulnerabilities, provides a list of previous attacks, discusses existing cyber security methodologies and provides a framework aiming to improve security in SCADA systems to protect them against cyber-attacks.
