This report focusses on critical infrastructures in the Netherlands and investigates three main questions: 1) How many ICS/SCADA devices located in the Netherlands can be easily found by potential attackers?, 2) How many of these devices are vulnerable to cyber-attacks?, and 3) What measures should be taken to prevent these devices from being hacked?
