Ahead of SCADA 2017 we chat to Dr. Elena Sitnikova, Critical Infrastructure Protection Research Leader at the Australian Centre for Cyber Security.
Elena discusses the risks automation poses to SCADA legacy systems and highlights the points on internet of things (IoT) for industrial systems. She describes a shifting focus to cyber-physical systems that require balancing machine to machine interaction (M2M) towards human-machine interactions and delves into potential tools and solutions to protect networks from unauthorised access and attacks.
Ahead of the SCADA Summit 2018 we chat to Mike Wassell, Operational Technology Services Manager at Sydney Water. In this article Mike discusses some of the challenges affecting modern SCADA operations and delves into the technologies and innovations Sydney Water is utilising to help build resilience and secure SCADA networks for the future.
