As many industries shift towards centralised controlled information systems for monitoring and control, more importance is being placed upon technologies such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisitions industrial systems (SCADA). This focus on integration and interoperability presents numerous challenges for security personnel and organisational management alike. It becomes paramount therefore to reciprocate this new direction within an organisation with adequate plans and frameworks that ensure protection and security of its SCADA architecture. A clear understanding of the relevant threats and vulnerabilities is critical for adopting/developing appropriate policy and frameworks. To this end, in this research we identify and analyse relevant SCADA security threats and vulnerabilities and present a simple scheme to classify them for better understanding.
