Schedule: September 15th from 1:00-4:30pm and September 16th from 1:00-5:00pm
Audience: Water and wastewater systems, government officials, and others involved in water sector cybersecurity. 7 TCHs are available for participation in this workshop. Participants must attend both days in full to receive the credits.
Cyber-attacks are striking critical infrastructure across the United States, including water and wastewater systems, with increasing frequency. Recent cyber-attacks on water and wastewater systems have manipulated treatment processes, disabled process control and business enterprise systems, and stolen proprietary data. Cybersecurity best practices and incident response planning can prevent or mitigate many of these attacks and are essential to the sound operation and management of water and wastewater systems.
The U.S. EPA is sponsoring a series of free virtual workshops on water sector cybersecurity. These workshops consist of two half-days. The first day will give water and wastewater systems current information on cyber threats and risk drivers, resources to bolster cybersecurity, and key findings from cyber vulnerability assessments of water and wastewater systems. The second day will lead participants through incident response exercises for cyber-attacks on water and wastewater systems. The overall goal is for participants to identify planning and procedural actions that enhance cybersecurity and mitigate risk in their systems.
