Telvent in DHS SCADA testing project
Rockville, MD-based Telvent reports that it is the first vendor selected to participate in a DHS supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) testing project to ensure critical IT security and infrastructure protection in multi-vendor environments.
Telvent's SCADA system will be deployed as part of DHS’ new multi-vendor assessment (MVA) project.
The MVA project will produce best practices and security guidance for asset owners planning to deploy and integrate next-generation critical infrastructure control systems, says Telvent. MVA will include operating a simulated pipeline to accurately model and explore numerous real-world processes that occur within critical infrastructure.
Telvent notes that it will support DHS' control systems security program's mission to reduce risks associated with control systems that command the nation's vital water, gas, oil, and electric networks.
