WaterISAC helps you supercharge your security by weeding out all the noise about security threats that do not apply to drinking water and wastewater utilities. Focusing only on water security affirms our status as the best, most comprehensive single point source for data, facts, case studies, and analysis. We share this information only with members by posting it to the WaterISAC Resource Center, emailing in the form of advisories and newsletters, and discussing during our regular webinars.
When we learn of physical or cyber threats that may present a more imminent danger to water and wastewater utilities, WaterISAC emails threat advisories to our members.
Security & Resilience Update
Twice a week, WaterISAC emails the Security & Resilience Update to our members. Each issue contains the latest advisories, best practices, and reports that are relevant to the water and wastewater sector. The update also lists upcoming webinars, workshops, and other events.
The WaterISAC Resource Center is a secure, confidential, and trusted online source of water security information. The Resource Center contains more than several thousand articles, reports, best practices, threat analyses, and tools focused on reducing risks to water and wastewater infrastructure. Members appreciate its user-friendly platform, which facilitates searching and browing.
Throughout the year, WaterISAC hosts webinars—free of charge to our members—on current water security and emergency management topics. Webinars are also recorded and made available to WaterISAC members for viewing at any time.

Biological and Chemical Contaminant Databases
Through WaterISAC's Resource Center, members can seamlessly access three biological and chemical contaminant databases containing information on more than 700 substances. Sources include the UK Water Industry Research and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Water Security Division. Because they address the occurrence, behavior in water, health and environmental effects, and treatment techniques for the contaminants, these databases can be helpful in responding to water contamination threats, incidents and chemicals spills.
