Join us to look at what the Oldsmar, Florida cyber attack and similar attacks really do mean, and do not mean, for water system security. We review the attacks in light of analog and digital safeties as well as secondary protections in automation systems. Then, given these examples, we go back to basics – what are the real cyber risks we need to worry about? What are the tools & techniques available to manage those risks? And which of these tools and techniques make more sense in smaller water systems vs larger systems and why?
