NACWA to Host Virtual Event on Security Issues Facing Wastewater Utilities
Water and wastewater utilities are facing increasing security threats from outside parties to both their cyber platforms and critical infrastructure. News reports abound detailing events such as ransomware attacks on wastewater utility records, attempts by hackers to remotely poison water supplies, and intimidation of utility workers at treatment facilities by armed activists.
We invite you to join NACWA for a joint Hot Topics and Security Committee virtual event featuring a panel of experts who will discuss what utilities need to know about these threats, potential legal liability in handling them, and what to do if your utility is facing a potential attack.
The event will be held Tuesday, Apr. 20th from 2:00-3:30 p.m. (Eastern). Registration is free for NACWA members. Visit our website for additional details and to register.
