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?


60 Minutes

Who’s it for?

Water system managers and supervisors
Utility board/commission members
Process, DCS and SCADA engineers
ICS and enterprise security practitioners

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What happened most recently in Florida, and in other water system attacks historically
  • Why smaller water systems are the credible targets for cyber terrorists
  • Cybersecurity and industrial security drivers and first principles
  • How to use these principles to create affordable and effective security programs
  • How to scale these programs from the smallest to the biggest of utilities
