Today’s LiveWire Spotlight article addresses the industry informational advisory issued by the Electricity Sector Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ES-ISAC) regarding a discovery of a potentially broad-based telephony-enabled cyber threat designed to attack systems control networks. It describes latent vulnerabilities in SCADA and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that hackers can exploit through clear text messaging protocols used in cell phones.

NERC expects to conduct a webinar on telephony-enabled weakness on a date yet to be determined. At that time, the ES-ISAC will provide industry stakeholders some additional wireless attack scenarios and mitigation details.
