Region of Waterloo – Antivirus Implementation

The Region of Waterloo retained NLS Engineering to implement a Region wide SCADA antivirus solution. The scope of this project includes provisioning a central Kaspersky antivirus server at the Preston WWTP and the deployment of agents across all SCADA servers and workstations.

We provisioned a new Windows Server 2012R2 virtual machine on the Preston WWTP ESX server and configured relevant switches and firewalls to enable secure updates from the Kaspersky virus definition server. Deploying antivirus in a SCADA environment requires careful planning and execution to provide a proper level of protection to SCADA infrastructure while maintaining SCADA subsystem functionality.
