WSCC Hosts Cyber Security Training
The Water Sector Coordinating Council (WSCC) is hosting a series of workshops designed to improve the knowledge and skills of U.S.-based water sector utility employees who are responsible for industrial control systems (ISC) security.
The Department of Homeland Security’s Control Systems Security Program will present the workshop training and discuss security products that are available for use by water sector asset owners and operators. These one-day events will include:
- a briefing on WSCC's Roadmap to Secure Control Systems in the Water Sector;
- an overview of cyber risks and threats to utility-based ICS;
- concrete and easy-to-understand mitigation strategies for securing ICS;
- demonstration and instruction on the Department of Homeland Security's mitigation and self-assessment tools.
The workshop will be Oct. 15 in Chicago, Oct. 26 in San Antonio, and Nov. 3 in Holliston (Boston). To register for one of the three workshops, go to www.waterisac.org and select News and Events at the top of the page. Registration is only available through the WATERISAC Web site.
WSCC is comprised of water and wastewater utilities and other associations representing the water sector. WSCC serves as a policy, strategy, and coordination mechanism for advising U.S. EPA and the Department of Homeland Security.
