Upcoming WaterISAC Webinar Series on Risk and Resilience under AWIA

WaterISAC is hosting a series of three webinars that will discuss risk and resilience under America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA). The first in the new series will cover the requirements of AWIA as they relate to risk and resilience. The second part of the series will begin looking at what’s involved in a risk and resilience assessment using the American Water Works Association J100-13 Risk and Resilience Management of Water and Wastewater Systems standard. The third and final part of the series finishes the look at the risk and resilience assessment process using J100-13 with a focus on some examples of risk and resilience management. Note that the first webinar in the series is open to the public, while the next two require WaterISAC membership.

This webinar series complements WaterISAC’s previous Conducting Cyber Risk Assessments under AWIA series.
