Rising to the Challenge of Pen Testing ICS

Many organizations, including portions of our national critical infrastructure, rely on industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition systems (SCADA) to automate critical processes. This includes manufacturing, water treatment, power generation and distribution, and transportation. These systems present unique challenges to teams that perform penetration testing on them. While it is clear that these systems should be tested for security flaws, public and personnel safety must take priority, and continuity of service must be considered for critical systems.
