AWWA's Cybersecurity Guidance Tool For the Water Sector – Rocky Mountain Region
As water professionals know, cybersecurity is one of the greatest issues facing water systems in the 21st century. AWWA is unveiling a FREE workshop in Colorado to equip utilities to effectively use AWWA's cybersecurity resources.
This four-hour class will provide utility owners in the water sector with the ability to quickly review their control system architecture and use against national standards, guidelines and best practices for the secure operation of their control systems and technology assets.
Utilizing the Cybersecurity Guidance Tool and interpreting the recommended controls requires that users understand their control system architecture, connections to their business networks, how control system data is used by operations and other staff, and what remote access systems are used. The system information is used to select a series of "Use Cases" in the tool that then identifies what controls are required to protect the control system.
This workshop will provide the end user education, guidance and examples of how to use the AWWA Cybersecurity Guidance Tool. This workshop consists of five modules. Click here for more information and to view the lesson plan.
Prerequisite: Attendees must view an AWWA webinar prior to class. The link will be emailed to workshop registrants a few days prior to the workshop.
Continuing Education Credits: AWWA has applied for CEU's and they are pending.
Audience: Cybersecurity managers. Attendees may include a wide variety of job titles: operator, security manager, IT specialist - and includes anyone at the utility responsible or cybersecurity.
