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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
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.
