SCADA

After all these years going after surveillance, the future is now SCADA?

Cyber security and specifically protecting SCADA systems has quite a hype these days. Especially in the big-data domain, there are quite a few companies offering big-data analytics that are supposed to monitor network activity and detect intrusions and any attempt to damage the system (e.g. detect anomalies that might indicate that the system is compromised by a trojan horse, stuxnet-like worm etc.).

I agree that cyber security and protecting systems is hot right now. I am curious what type of system BRS Labs has for that.

It seems to me quite the pivot to go from analyzing video to analyzing SCADA.

In theory, the technology behind their 'behaviour based' video analytics can be used to analyze SCADA information. From what I have read, their analytics product is supposed to be able to learn the routine behaviour of a monitored environment over a period of 2-3 weeks and then start generating alerts when something is out of the ordinary.

Whether or not this is easily transferrable to SCADA ? I don't know.

Will it be reliable? Will the alerts be relevant? No clue...

The buzz around big-data analytics oftne brings to my mind a quote I like by a researcher called Dan Ariely:

"Big data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it..."

I've been following BRS for a long time...However, I really believe they are heading in the correct direction with Scada and InfoSec in the near future...time will tell...like 2yrs!!!

New info / instructions about BRS Labs and SCADA. It's sensor data in a CSV file.

Maybe they will do good (or bad) at this but it's wildly different than the technology used to analyze video.

Its happening...big movement and interest in Aisight for SCADA!!!!!

Care to expand? Close deals? Big revenue?

Perhaps a reference to any buzz generated from the recently launched AIsight SCADA Portal:

"We created the SCADA Portal to allow customers to try out our technology with their own real-world data and see what anomalies AISight can find in their data,” said Wesley Cobb, Chief Science Officer for BRS Labs. “The Portal receives data sets, makes sure they're valid, analyzes the data, and returns reports summarizing its findings."

They seem quite proud of their new focus:

"We're so confident of the robustness of the technology that we've built the Portal to do these things autonomously and without the need to know anything about the nature of the data customers have given it."

Feed the Portal!

I can't expand but I think BRS will in do time...It's real!!!

Cross your heart and hope to die?

Check out BRSLABS ISC WEST this year...OMG!!!

SCADA's not a big seller at ISC West so I am curious what else they are bringing...
