Cybersecurity Guide Now Available


AWWA has released a free online guide, titled  Cybersecurity Risk & Responsibility in the Water Sector that highlights how to manage the risk of cyber-attacks to critical water infrastructure systems.


The guide identifies scalable and effective measures to take to protect water
systems, operations and customer data. Foreseeable challenges, such as
technological and financial limitations, to building a robust cybersecurity defense are
also identified and addressed.


This guide is especially timely because the passage of America’s Water
Infrastructure Act of 2018, which was signed into law last week, requires community
water systems serving a population of more than 3,300 persons to conduct a risk
and resilience assessment of their systems. This includes assessing the security of
any electronic, computer or other automated systems that the community water
system uses.
