Independent Study Pinpoints Significant SCADA/ICS Cybersecurity Risks

By Fortinet


“Many businesses and government agencies have embraced supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems or industrial control systems (ICS) in recent years, but the technologies face major security challenges. Nearly 6 in 10 organizations using SCADA or ICS that were surveyed by Forrester Consulting in a study commissioned by Fortinet indicate they experienced a breach in those systems in the past year—and many of those organizations are adding to their risk by allowing technology and other partners a high level of access into their systems. Most organizations also report connections between their traditional IT systems and their SCADA/ICS, introducing the potential for outside hackers to penetrate these control systems.”
