Attacks against industrial control systems double
Attacks against industrial control systems doubled last year, according to a new report from Dell.
“We have over a million firewalls sending data to us on a minute-by-minute basis,” said John Gordineer, director of product marketing for network security at Dell. “We anonymize the data and see interesting trends.”
In particular, attacks specifically targeting SCADA industrial control systems rose 100 percent in 2014 compared to the previous year.
Countries most affected were Finland, the U.K. and the U.S.
