Engineering Aspects of Cyber Security for Control and Safety Systems in Critical Infrastructures

Industrial Control Systems Cyber Security

Abstract: Historically, control and safety systems for critical infrastructures have not included cyber security measures. The addition of these measures will increase the cost of both design and construction but the increase in cost will be lower than adding them after design. Even though control systems architecture is becoming more like IT systems, there are major differences that must be recognized and applied during the engineering design and implementation. This paper presents design considerations for control and safety systems in new infrastructure projects.
