Process Anomaly Detection Using Electric Signals

ICS/SCADA operators understand the importance of resilience and mission assurance. What is not well understood is that the process sensors that monitor level, voltage, flow, temperature, current, pressure, etc. in Critical Infrastructure operations do not require user authentication and are not secure. Moreover, cyber attacks that are designed to change sensor configurations, as well as non-malicious impacts of sensor drift or plugged lines, cannot be detected by today’s network anomaly detection technology.
When ICS/SCADA operators can detect process anomalies in the operation of mission critical industrial assets by monitoring electric signals, whether resulting from a technical malfunction or a cyber attack. Siga has conducted an 18-month Proof of Concept (PoC) project in close collaboration with a large urban water treatment utility. The results illustrate that plant operators were able to identify process anomalies not visible to the SCADA system and to alert operators to deviations from regulatory standards.  Siga has prepared a detailed case study of this interesting PoC, and we would welcome the opportunity to share the results, which demonstrate the compelling cyber security benefits of our innovative, electric signal-based, industrial sensor monitoring and process anomaly detection technology
