What is the SCADA Cybersecurity Framework?
SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. It is a control system architecture that comprises computer systems, networked data communications, and Graphical User Interface (GUI) for a high-level process supervisory management. In addition, SCADA also incorporates other peripheral devices such as discrete Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) to interface with process machinery or plant. One of the applications of SCADA also includes operations and management of the project-driven process in construction. SCADA systems also control most critical infrastructures such as transport systems and industrial networks.
