Cybersecurity Training for the Water Sector
Zoom class on September 8, 2022
September 8, 2022
8:30 am – 2:30 pm
Cyber attacks are striking critical infrastructure across the United States, including water and wastewater systems, with increasing frequency. Recent cyber attacks on water and wastewater systems have manipulated treatment processes, disabled process control and business enterprise systems, and stolen proprietary data. Cybersecurity best practices and incident response planning can prevent or mitigate many of these attacks and are essential to the sound operation and management of water and wastewater systems and to protecting public health.
This workshop will provide information from expert speakers on:
- The big picture of cybersecurity in the water sector
- Water cybersecurity case studies and lessons learned
- What to do if you suspect a cyber attack and how to prevent/protect from one
- How to report water sector cybersecurity incidents in Vermont
- Water sector funding options for addressing cybersecurity vulnerabilities
- Discussion-based tabletop exercise scenario involving a cyber incident in the water sector
Workshop participation is open to water and wastewater systems, government officials, and others involved in water sector cybersecurity.
The workshop is presented by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 1, Department of Homeland Security/Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Region 1, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and Vermont Emergency Management (VEM).
