The water utility industry in North America has seen an explosion in data-connected infrastructure and system integration and expansion. This significant increase in connectivity delivers benefits that were unthinkable only a few years ago. However, with this growth comes increased exposure to domestic and foreign cyber threats, and data management challenges. These threats have made it increasingly important for water utilities to match digitization efforts with best-practice cyber and data security.
"Conservative attitudes toward emerging technology notoriously frustrate innovation and adoption rates in the municipal water industry. Concerning the increasing digitization and exposure of water networks, however, cybersecurity solutions must not be allowed to follow the same slow adoption curve," said Cutler. "Water utilities must learn more about how they can quickly and efficiently protect their systems against new threats and exposure."
The webcast aims to discuss the cybersecurity landscape in the water utility industry and promote innovative solutions to ensure a secure future.
Attend this webcast to:
- Understand critical cybersecurity challenges and weaknesses in the water utility industry
- Identify best practices to help your organization tackle cybersecurity challenges
- Learn about public initiatives and regulatory efforts to promote cybersecurity initiatives
