A Strategic, Cost-Effective Approach to Mitigate Control System Risk

Cybersecurity threats are ubiquitous and far-reaching. But the stakes are highest when the threats impact critical infrastructure, including water systems. National and industry organizations provide guidance regarding how to protect these systems. Still, water utilities must determine how to incorporate actionable items within the context of their organizational structure and budgets. This presentation outlines the most dangerous cyber threats to utility control systems and why an active defense strategy is often the most practical and effective response. It also includes steps utilities can take now to prepare for the inevitable day when they are faced with a new security challenge or regulatory requirement.
