Protecting Critical Infrastructure: SCADA Network Security Monitoring
SCADA networks are used in critical infrastructure to control the smart grid, oil pipelines, water treatment and chemical manufacturing plants. And the threat of hackers taking them over or a worm causing an outage quickly escalate into "Hollywood" or "worst-case" scenario.
This paper will discuss a variety of SCADA security issues, including an analysis of how active vulnerability scans can disrupt older networks and how Tenable’s solutions, including passive network monitoring, can help avoid this. In addition, this paper will discuss how Tenable’s solutions can be used to facilitate the Department of Energy recommendations to improve SCADA networks.
