Since the end of the noughties, there has been a rapid growth in the number of reports relating to cyber attacks on Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). These have included SCADA environments and only served to exacerbate the issue of “cyber warfare” which had previously been viewed as a problem mainly motivated by financial gain rather than sabotage or notoriety.
These reports unfortunately highlight that there is a very real threat to SCADA systems and networks, particularly from the Internet, and there is a genuine need to ensure that appropriate security best practice procedures and controls are being implemented.
Is suitable encryption being employed when transmitting data to and from the supervisory system? Is appropriate firewalling deployed between your MTUs and RTUs? Are you too reliant on network isolation?
An assessment of your SCADA environment performed by NTA, consisting of a targeted mix of testing and auditing, will provide the answers to these questions and more.
NTA has provided penetration testing of SCADA environments and other CNI across a number of sectors including emergency services, central government, health, pharmaceuticals, life sciences and utilities. Whether your logical infrastructure assets are at a pre or post-implementation stage, NTA is also able to assist with your security and development requirements, with assessments of both internal and external infrastructure.
One of the team is always willing to discuss any specific requirements or questions you might have so feel free to contact us.
