Summary

In this webinar recording, we demonstrate in a fictional scenario how attackers can reach into the network in a substation via the Internet, place malware on an RTU, and then switch circuit breakers. We also present security measures which could have prevented this fictional attack.

A detailed course of action for this hack will be presented and the security gaps will be revealed. In addition, we will showcase potential security measures by means of our Intrusion Detection System (IDS) StationGuard.

After this webinar recording, you will know about the possible dangers of cyber attacks on your substation and you will have learned why an IDS can increase the security of your substations.
