Jim at DCS Security (that’s not a picture of him above) has a great post on control systems/SCADA and security (here). I suggest you boogie on over and give it a read. This is not just relevant to the manufacturing floor as Jim points out. The line between personal and professional computing is blurring, the entertainment industry is becoming digitized and our homes are using internet technology in new and exciting ways creating new security threats – as Microsoft, Cisco and Krups push into my living room and allow me to control my toaster from my computer some eastern European hacker will figure out a way to burn my toast and then Spectre will have surely won!
