Definition Edit

Energy delivery systems are the backbone of the energy sector — a network of processes that produce, transfer, and distribute energy and the interconnected electronic and communication devices that monitor and control those processes.

Overview Edit

Energy delivery systems include control systems, the brains that operate and monitor our energy infrastructure. Two examples of such systems are the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and the Distributed Control Systems (DCS). Most early SCADA system designs did not anticipate the security threats posed by the integration of advances in computers and communication such as off-the-shelf software and operating systems, public telecommunications networks, and the Internet.

Security Edit

Energy delivery systems have become more productive and efficient, but the energy sector is faced with an unprecedented challenge in protecting systems against cyber incidents and threats.
