Cyber-Resilience Through Manual Operations
Engineering and Operations Lessons Learned
Water ISAC, AWWA, and Federal Agencies have long warned of the ongoing cyber-attacks on water and wastewater utilities’ control systems.
“Recent headlines are a clear indicator that the bad actor sees utilities as a target for sophisticated cyberattacks. This has elevated the importance of cyber readiness for water and wastewater utilities.”
– AWWA, January 2022
West Yost’s Cybersecurity Team will be educating clients on operations and engineering, specifically what the threat is about, and what you can do to prepare your team to operate your system during A Day without SCADATM.
Our Resilience Practice Area Leader, Andrew Ohrt, PE and two of our in-house control system cybersecurity experts, Michael Gruenbaum and Joel Cox, GICSP, CCNA, will provide the why and discuss case studies illustrating West Yost’s field experience helping our clients become more cyber-resilient.
