Building the Next System Capable of Fending Off the Next Stuxnet Attack on Industrial Control Systems

Aug. 9, 2012

Russian antivirus firm Kaspersky Lab seeks a developer and analyst to create an operating system that could dissuade the next Stuxnet attack on industrial control systems. Currently, Kaspersky Lab wants to hire professionals with experience in programming PCS and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, implementing industrial networking and communications protocols, and knowledge of Siemens, Emerson, Omron, ABB and other programmable logic controllers.

Currently, Kaspersky Lab wants to hire professionals with experience in programming PCS and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, implementing industrial networking and communications protocols, and knowledge of Siemens, Emerson, Omron, ABB and other programmable logic controllers.

At the AusCERT conference in May, Kaspersky Lab chief Eugene Kaspersky, told the audience that SCADA was “not possible to protect” and that these systems could be "very easy victims."

"The only way to protect critical infrastructure – is to redesign SCADA systems based on a secure operating system. It is possible to do, but it requires a redesign of all the software for industrial systems," reported CSO.com.au.
