Securing Water and Wastewater Systems
Water and wastewater systems depend on automated control systems to operate and monitor processes such as treatment, testing and the movement of water.
In recent years, there has been an increase in connectivity of OT networks to other networks and to the Internet, due to increased process automation, more segments, and new remote sensors.
The reliance on these Industrial Control Systems (ICS), such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), has opened the critical water and wastewater infrastructure to new exposures and threats: whether they are malware or ransomware infections, accidental activities that cause damage, or carefully crafted targeted attacks by well-organized hacker groups and national threat actors.
This white paper discusses how water & wastewater facilities can remain safe, even during today’s challenging times.
