Abstract
Critical Infrastructure or CI are so crucial and play a vital role in the society. A damage or breakage of it will have a huge effect on humanity and economy. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA) play a big role on Critical Infrastructure since most of these infrastructures are controlled by control systems like SCADA. In this paper, we discuss the vulnerabilities of a SCADA system, its effect to the society and the ways to prevent such vulnerabilities. We also researched on the background of the SCADA system and its comparability to the common computer system is discussed.
