University SCADA lab doesn’t address cybersecurity

July 2, 2010

In this month’s issue of IEEE Power and Energy, there is an article titled: ”Remote Control”. It discusses the SCADA laboratory set up at Jamia Millia Islamia’s university power engineering department in New Delhi, India. The lab is a state-of-the art facility to help bachelors’ and masters’ students in power systems engineering to keep up with the latest power systems technologies. It appears to be a very comprehensive automation lab to address SCADA, RTUs, modern communications, Smart Grid, etc.

This is another example of the need for the engineering and security communities to work together.
