M8E - Defend ICS/SCADA System - Operation Ocean View

Scenario Overview

There are reports that the local water authority has just been compromised, putting delivery of clean water for the city at risk. Readings from the water treatment plant’s SCADA systems are showing that the chlorine level is 10 times above the amount deemed safe for consumption. It’s just possible that someone inside the organization gained access to the plant’s SCADA system to override all safety functions. The goal of this scenario is to conduct an incident response mission of the water treatment plant’s infrastructure and SCADA systems to understand the threat attack vectors used, report attribution, and restore operations.
