Smart Grid Challenges - Defending the Integrity of Wireless Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Distribution Automation (DA) Deployments
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Distribution Automation (DA) Field Area Networks (FAN) have become utilities’ largest, most complex, and often least understood networks. Assessing AMI and Smart Grid system security is different than traditional computer and network security in both scope and technique. Smart Meter systems are composed of a large number of embedded field components that are vulnerable to cyber attacks. These attacks against FANs and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks are real and increasing in frequency.
Wireless FANs are especially vulnerable because they are in unprotected environments. Most have little real-time network health, performance monitoring, or behavioral baselines; and, FANs lack field visibility, making operations and troubleshooting difficult. Diagnosing network or device problems can take hours. Traditional IT security tools lack context and are not sufficient to address the increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.
SecureSmart™ Continuous Monitoring as a Service is the only infrastructure monitoring, analysis, and operations solution that provides early warning of anomalous behavior and can dynamically detect intrusions in wireless networks. SecureSmart™ provides daily assessments and diagnostics by a seasoned threat analysis team. It also delivers significantly increased security, operational visibility, situational awareness, and continuous feedback at levels previously unavailable to the industry.
SCADA Protocol Protection - Real-time ICS Cyber Security Monitoring and Anomaly Detection Solution
Increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks on Industrial Control Systems (ICS) in general, and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems in particular, have become an industry norm. Most recently, North American utilities are experiencing thousands of such attacks per month.
In response, Vencore Labs’ SecureSmart™ ProtocolPatroller is providing utilities continuous cyber monitoring and anomaly detection and protection. The awardwinning SecureSmart™ ProtocolPatroller delivers extensive protocol-specific security capabilities for smart grid and other ICS and SCADA applications.
