Synopsis:

Covid-19, lack of informed individuals, global interactions, high-speed communications among others, have forced the digital automation / electronic communications, as a way of life into the ‘manual labour / physical interaction orientated’ activities in Malaysia, without a choice and in the shortest possible of circumstances. These ‘binary technologies’ brings with it a new form of concerns that were not present with the older ways of doing things, and are collectively referred to as cyber-security concerns. SCADA forms part of this highly automated scenario that is only going to be expanding at faster rates in the future. As such, cyber-security approaches and practices has to dynamically evolve to handle present complex, as well as future unknown threats. Fortunately, SCADA methodical approaches sets a solid platform to analyze the issues, and prescribe possible solutions with highly desirable outcomes and solutions.

All this requires an equally advanced thinking skills in cyber security that is coupled with practical ‘out-of-the-box’ paradigm approaches. This includes classifying all threats into cyber-espionage, cyber-theft, cyber-terrorism and cyber-war. This approach puts the damages from cyber-security in an appropriate context for many of the shareholders and stakeholders across vast business disciplines. The old ways of thinking and approaches might have worked so far, but it will fall short with many more threats coming online exponentially, from multiple sources and complexities.

In a world where cyber security is confidential and covered by NDAs, it is difficult to pool the cutting-edge knowledge and applications for the collective good. Therefore, highly automated and complex systems have been operating in a limited, physically confined mode with outdated hardware and software that deprives the international competitive edge that all Malaysian companies need.
