It’s critical to have the proper framework and cybersecurity measures in place to help prevent cyber attacks for cloud-based deployments of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) in the cloud offers the potential for greater flexibility, scalability, and certainty. It also promises the ability to massively reduce capital expenditure, provide predictable costs, accelerate implementation, and quickly accommodate changes when adding or altering assets. As a more efficient deployment model, cloud-based SCADA is designed to reduce barriers to entry across many industries.
With cloud-based SCADA, there is no need for a control or backup centre. Users can leverage the cloud infrastructure from their preferred service provider and move from a capital expenditure (CapEx) model to an operational expenditure (OpEx) model. Eight to 10 months for a SCADA project can be reduced to a few weeks. Also, users can start with fewer assets and add or remove them as needed. In addition, software versions are always kept current. Benefits are continually being proven in the industry.
For example, a project for a crude oil and natural gas exploration and production company in Canada used offsite SCADA to bring over 300 wells online within one month of signing the order.
