Cyber-only Risk and Resilience Assessments
West Yost has completed more than 30 cyber-risk and resilience assessments (cyber-RRAs) for large utilities, which serve more than 100,000 people, to comply with America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA). These cyber-RRAs used the American Water Works Association’s Cybersecurity Risk Management Tool and Guidance. West Yost conducted site visits and workshops to understand how each utility used technology and the associated cybersecurity controls they had in place. Each cyber-RRA incorporated elements of Idaho National Laboratory’s Cyber-Informed Engineering methodology. Cyber-risk and resilience management strategies were developed as components to AWIA-compliant emergency response plan for some projects.
