Detection, Correlation, and Visualization of Attacks Against Critical Infrastructure Systems
Digital control systems are essential to the safe and efficient operation of a variety of industrial processes in sectors such as electric power, oil and gas, water treatment, and manufacturing. Modern control systems are increasingly connected to other control systems as well as to corporate systems. They are also increasingly adopting networking technology and system and application software from conventional enterprise systems. These trends can make control systems vulnerable to cyber attack, which in the case of control systems may impact physical processes causing environmental harm or injury.
