McKim & Creed performed a SCADA system cybersecurity audit to help Charlotte County prepare its SCADA system against cybersecurity threats. The County’s SCADA network hardware, configurations and policies were reviewed as well as its PLC hardware to ensure the most recent firmware versions were in use.
McKim & Creed also performed a more comprehensive network audit to recommend security improvements. Primary items audited were the SCADA facility and remote communication networks, network architecture, remote access, and the current backup and disaster recovery plan. A Roadmap to Maturity was prepared to guide the County toward a higher level of security maturity.
