Australia’s leading conference for improving tools, techniques and defences in the SCADA landscape
The SCADA market is growing rapidly, expected to reach up to $11.16 billion by 2020 (SCADA Market by Components, Architecture, Application, and Geography – Analysis & Forecast to 2013 – 2020).
As the future market turns increasingly digital, there is an ever increasing push to increase connectivity and communication in SCADA systems.
Although this online connection leads to increased reach and use of SCADA systems, it also increases the potential security risks and decreases direct control of the systems. Combined with the current mining downturn and Australia’sshifting economy, this has lead to even further budget tightening.
