It is essential to properly manage cybersecurity of critical infrastructure generally and the water sector in particular. Vulnerabilities that are not properly addressed – proactively and with a swift and effective response to incidents-can harm public health and safety, undermine national security and create a major disaster. We will explore recent cases and challenges impacting the water sector; discuss operational and legal risks and priorities; discuss potential solutions and best practices; and better understand implications for ratings agencies and insurers.
