Why Cybersecurity needs to be a priority for the Critical Infrastructure ?

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and Distributed Control ‎Systems (DCS), which unfortunately have been subject to a growing number of ‎attacks in recent years. As they deliver vital services to critical infrastructure, such ‎as communications, manufacturing and energy among others, hostile intruders ‎mounting attacks represent a serious threat to the day to day running of nation ‎states.‎

Why Industry is a target for cybercrime

Cyber criminals only require a few expenses beyond a computer and an Internet ‎connection. They are unconstrained by geography and distance. They are difficult to ‎identify and prosecute due to anonymous nature of the Internet.‎

Give attacks against information technology systems are very attractive, it is ‎expected that the number and sophistication of cyber-attacks will keep growing.‎
