Is SCADA The New Cyber Attack Battlefield For India?

An attack upon SCADA is essentially an attack upon the critical infrastructure of a nation. Recently, cyber criminals used SCADA to burn out a public utility water pump in United States. Malware like Stuxnet and Duqu have further created nuisance for US and other nations. These incidences have also forced the defense advanced projects research agency (DARPA) of US to further strengthen its offensive and defensive cyber capabilities.

In the Indian context, the critical infrastructure protection of India is not in good shape. There is neither an implementable cyber security policy of India nor there is any critical ICT infrastructure protection policy of India. Even the Indian nuclear facilities may not fully cyber secure.
