GrayMatter's SCADA Assessment

GrayMatter’s SCADA Assessment assigns a score of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) in four categories. An average of those scores gives an overall view of an organization's SCADA system. Assessments typically require 3-4 weeks to complete, but can vary depending on the number of plants.
