New Cybersecurity Guide for the Water Sector from AWWA

Earlier this week, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) released a cybersecurity guide for the water sector that provides some details about risks and responsibilities for the sector. The guide explains why cybersecurity needs to be a top priority for water and wastewater systems and the communities that they serve. The threats are persistent and evolving and developing a reasonable approach given insufficient financial, human and technological resources is challenging. But it’s something that needs to be done, as attacks will happen and one doesn’t want to be caught unprepared.
