Energy and Utilities
Two of the most critical parts of energy related systems are the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Distributed Control System (DCS). Historically these control systems were closed and used private networks for communication between devices. Today new control systems increasingly rely on open, public networks for communication. These new communication channels create significant opportunities for improvements in efficiency but also create opportunities for exploitation.
Today organizations of all sizes in the energy sector not only need tough security but also the ability to validate compliance to a broad audience of stakeholders.
