Where are the control system cyber security solutions???
About a month ago, I issued a call for control system cyber security solutions to be evaluated by an electric utility in an actual utility setting. The utility has power plants, electric distribution and low level transmission, SCADA, Smart Grid, etc. The purpose of the project is to find solutions that cannot only provide security, but more importantly, maintain or improve system reliability. To date, I have received about 15-20 responses. Considering how many solutions providers claim to be able to help secure control systems, where are the rest? The second point is that most of the 15-20 solutions were essentially "recycled IT" solutions repackaged as SCADA solutions. We are still looking for solutions.
