It has also created a document with links to the resources that were discussed during the webinar. WaterISAC Lead Analyst Charles Egli and Cybersecurity Risk Analyst Jennifer Walker both presented during this webinar, discussing the role of WaterISAC supporting and furthering the security and resilience of the sector and recent cyber incidents and threats relevant to water and wastewater utilities. Representatives of EPA’s Water Sector Division and the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies also spoke during the webinar. The EPA representative discussed the balance of valuable technology needs, such as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), with cybersecurity measures in the context of water quality surveillance and response systems (SRS).
