Jan 29, 2013

Eric Byres, expert in the field of SCADA security, talks about his 2013 SCADA security predictions in Tofino's blog "Practical SCADA Security."

In a blog post titled "SCADA Security Directions 2013," Byres writes about what he thinks will happen in the world of SCADA and ICS Security during the current year. He also gives a look back at the predictions he made for 2012.

Byres lists five prediction for 2013. Here are three:

  1. Tablets (iPad and Android) will start to be used in SCADA and ICS
  2. International Security Standards Start to Mature
  3. Independent SCADA/ICS Security Professional Certifications Will Be Available
