SCADA which stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition is an industrial control system which utilizes software, hardware and communication infrastructure for process monitoring and control. SCADA system is utilized in the Industrial sector such as Oil and Gas, chemical, power, Refining, Food and beverage, pharmaceutical, energy, Telecommunication, etc.
