Y Wangdi, D Veal, S P Maj


Vol. 11  No. 6  pp. 20-23


Critical infrastructure is considered to be any facilities or technologies that if degraded or rendered unavailable for an extended period would significantly impact on national economic and social well being. Hence in some countries there are government driven and led initiatives to provide critical infrastructure resilience. These initiatives require critical infrastructure owners and operators to manage foreseeable risks to ensure operational continuity even when subject to cyber attacks. This paper is a case study of the communications system of the national power generating company in an Asian country. Despite the importance of this company to the entire country it was found that network security measures were significantly lacking. Hence a secure network infrastructure was designed and is currently being implemented.
