Industrial Control Systems (SCADA) Audits

The Internet and ubiquitous internet protocol networks have changed the design of many Industrial Control Systems (ICSs) such that the control network is now often a protected extension of the corporate network. This means that these delicate ICSs are potentially reachable from the Internet by malicious and skilled adversaries.

One tool that an ICS asset owner may utilize to assess the risk to the ICS is to procure and facilitate a cyber-security assessment. Many considerations have to be taken into account because of significant differences between an ICS cyber security assessment and the tests that would be performed in a standard corporate environment.ISIT’s ICS cyber security assessment identifies and seeks to mitigate vulnerabilities that would allow an attacker to disrupt or take control of the system.
