Security in IIoT/SCADA - Challenges, case studies, strategies, and questions to ask.

Justin Hogue of LEC will discuss security and the application of Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) in control and monitoring systems (commonly referred to as SCADA – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) with an eye toward Maine’s varied and often rural industrial sectors. Specific similar case studies will be discussed from analogous sites.

Justin will cover challenges around securing sensor networks and SCADA systems and provide practical, real-life approaches for simplifying and securing data from remote and previously isolated locations. In addition, the discussion will explore a methodology for developing communication security strategies for industrial and utility networks, drawing samples from deployments that maximize bandwidth and ensure redundancy using cellular technology.

Lastly, the speaker will touch on considerations/questions operations personnel should ask when evaluating solutions.

MTUG thanks our Board Member/Coordinators Mike Begin and Austin Brower for arranging the speaker/topic for this session.
