Engineering-Grade Cybersecurity for Small and Large Water Systems

May 16, 2024
When cyber-attacks put public safety and critical infrastructures are at risk, modern engineering-grade designs yield deterministic, mathematically-modelable protections - protections that are in a real sense "unhackable."

Cyber-attacks with physical consequences are doubling every year - a crisis is approaching. Cyber-Informed Engineering is a powerful new way to address the problem - engineering-grade designs are in many senses "unhackable," which dramatically simplifies and reduces the cost of cybersecurity programs. In this webinar, we look at the numbers - how cyber-attacks take down water systems. 

We introduce Cyber-Informed Engineering (CIE) with examples from safety, protection, and network engineering. We then apply these ideas to water treatment systems small and large, arguing that the industry needs a new reference architecture - one that reflects today's threats, can grow into tomorrow's threats and needs, and can be cited in purchasing and requirements definitions so that engineering teams and contractors will build to the new vision.
