The audit will focus primarily on Industrial Control Systems (ICS) which are used across the electricity infrastructure, but are known to be prone to cyber threats. Industrial Control Systems are types of instrumentation used to electronically manage tasks efficiently. They are used in all types of critical infrastructure, including manufacturing, energy, transportation and water treatment. In the power sector, the most common industrial control systems are: Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, and Distributed Control Systems (DCS).
