NIST’s Guide to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security identifies major security objectives for ICS implementation. ICS includes supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS) and other control system configurations such as skid-mounted Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). It is found in many critical infrastructure sectors, including the water and wastewater sector. This document provides an overview of these ICS and typical system topologies, identifies typical threats and vulnerabilities to these systems, and provides recommended security countermeasures to mitigate the associated risks.
