Laughable security (in SCADA)

I've been preaching about the lacking state of computer security in SCADA for years; that networks will not stay isolated, proprietary, and protected.

This post really sums it up. Here's another really scary one.

The solution, at a minimum, is to apply standard IT practices to your industrial processes. Better yet, consider your architecture holistically with "Defense in Depth" in mind. In any case, have all the experts represented, which includes your IT department.

We should be able to fix this without it getting to the point of regulation.
