SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a type of Industrial Control System (ICS). It's a centralized system that monitors and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. The system consists of centralized computer, communication device, Programmable logic controllers, sensors put together to monitor, control and process a system. This system is used to automate a complex process. This system is widely used in power plants, traffic light control, power plants, etc., as it is a centralized system storing lot of data, there is chance for the attackers to hack the information.
