Description: In accordance with America’s Water Infrastructure Act (2018), community water systems serving a population of greater than 3,300 persons shall assess the risks to, and resilience of, its system. The risk and resiliency assessment includes the system’s electronic, computer, or other automated systems. Recent cyber security incidents highlight the need to protect utilities from threats, both physical and electronic. This training will aim to make system administrators, managers, and operators of utility systems more cognizant of the risks that are posed to its systems through electronic devices and help them create resilience against such attacks. Though the scope of the requirement is limited, it is our belief, ALL American utilities, regardless of size, should implement resiliency measures to help mitigate any attacks. Being aware of potential threats is one of the first steps to increasing the safety of those systems.
