Need for Improved Grid Security
Attacks on computer systems from viruses, root kits, Trojans, worms, keyloggers, bots and other malicious software have been the focus of hackers and cyber-security experts for many years. With historically isolated industrial controls such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) connected to the same networks, loss of service as well as physical damage can be caused from unauthorized access. In fact, the goal of the smart grid is network connectivity, so network security is fundamental to its successful implementation.
However, the global electricity grid infrastructure has experienced a rapid increase in the number of vulnerabilities since 2000 and the occurrences are growing. As one of the key assets of any nation, protection from the increasing number of attempted and successful attacks on the grid and its metering systems is (or should be) a national priority for all industrialized countries.
Increasingly, more dangerous attacks have occurred from a variety of sophisticated attackers, including foreign governments. Attackers include state-run and financed attacks, hackers, cyber terrorists, organized crime, industrial competitors, disgruntled employees and careless or poorly trained employees. Perhaps the most well-known recent occurrence was the Stuxnet computer worm. Discovered in June 2010, Stuxnet was spread through Microsoft Windows OS targeting Siemens’ SCADA systems.

Serco recognised as Supplier of the Year by Boeing
Date : 19 May 2011
Serco's US business has been recognised as Supplier of the Year by The Boeing Company in the Technology category for its state-of-the-practice Enterprise Architecture solutions.
The Boeing Supplier of the Year award is the company's premier supplier honour, presented annually to its top suppliers in recognition of their commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. This year's 16 winners represent an elite group among more than 17,525 active Boeing suppliers in nearly 52 countries around the world. This selection was based on stringent performance criteria for quality, delivery performance, cost, environmental initiatives, customer service and technical expertise. This is the second time Serco has been recognized as Supplier of the Year by Boeing. In January 2011, Serco also received the Boeing Performance Excellence Gold Award in recognition of the Company's performance excellence. "We are extremely honoured to receive this recognition for our work in support of Boeing. This prestigious award demonstrates our passion for excellence and ability to apply Serco's Enterprise Architecture expertise across a broad range of applications," said Ed Casey, Chairman and CEO of Serco North America.
"We continue to grow our EA practice, and over the past 15 years we have deployed solutions to support enterprises and systems across federal and commercial environments."
Serco's Enterprise Architecture Center of Excellence is based in Colorado Springs, CO. The team provides a variety of services in support of Boeing's business units as well as research and development efforts. Serco's architecture employs object-oriented (OO)/Unified Modelling Language (UML) to define, design and satisfy defense agencies' mission-critical requirements, including Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I). This approach improves system developer's understanding of operational requirements and how best to integrate enterprise operations and systems for the optimal fulfilment of C4I and other operational needs.
