Cybersecurity threats are real and they are here to stay. For example, a hacker penetrated the network of a water filtration plant in Pennsylvania. The intruder then planted malicious software that targeted the plant’s water treatment operations. So what can be done about this threat?

To help answer that question, the U.S. EPA is sponsoring a free, one-day workshop with re- sponse exercises to inform water utilities more about the cyber threat, ways to manage the threat, and tools (such as AWWA’s cyber- security tool) available to help utilities. In ad- dition, current results from several Virginia waterworks cyber assessments will be pre- sented to share lessons learned.

In the afternoon, two facilitated response ex- ercises will be conducted presenting realistic cyber threat scenarios, allowing all partici- pants to talk through the actions they would take in response to the threats. The goal is to identify general planning or procedural ac- tions that enhance cybersecurity and mitigate risk.
