Product description

Review

I wish that each SCADA developer read this book while developing the software, as the focus on functionality is remarkable in this collection. It explains in an easy way what happens when ‘there are some security and reliability issues around’ and what should be remembered so that it does not appear again. Every aspect is well described with clear examples.
―IEEE Communications Magazine

After Stuxnet, everything has changed in the automation industry. Computer worms devastating power plants and many other sites reminded people managing industrial control systems (ICS) that they are equally as vulnerable as standard IT systems. The book edited by Radvanovsky and Brodsky provides, in a collection of various contributions, a thorough guide on how to design supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems to prevent most security hazards, what to take into consideration while implementing various methods of authentication, and how to prepare and respond efficiently in case of ICS faults.

The book consists of five sections divided into eighteen compact chapters describing all the aspects of risks and assets related to designing and maintaining ICS. ... In short, it is a guidebook on good (automated) security practice. I wish that each SCADA developer read this book while developing the software, as the focus on functionality is remarkable in this collection. It explains in an easy way what happens when ‘there are some security and reliability issues around’ and what should be remembered so that it does not appear again.
―Robert Wojcik writing in IEEE Communications Magazine, May 2014

I cannot imagine a better book, whether you're a "newbie" or a seasoned SCADA engineer. Very thorough, very interesting, and very well written!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book by 2 industry experts 26 Sept. 2013
By D. R. Pitzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
These authors are industry experts, so you'd expect a book by them to be good. It is. This is not a theoretical treatment of the subject ... sound practical advice.
3.0 out of 5 stars Overall a good book with some great sections but leaves a big gap for disaster recovery 19 July 2016
By Sihoko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Though this book consolidates a lot of good information and I consider Robert Radvanovsky as an expert, the book is also in some sections a one on one copy of the work of others. For example section 5 on DRP is copied for 90+% from the NIST SP 800-34 R1 document, without any reference to the original writers.

As such parts of the book are original and good reading, one section of the book on disaster recovery is a copy from the standard (which is free of charge on the Internet) and primarily valid for SCADA ignoring DCS.
