Security and Preparedness -- Don't Know Where to Begin With Cyber Security? You May Already Be on Your Way

Journal AWWA - December 2012

Water and wastewater professionals have it tough: budgets seem to always be shrinking and regulations are continually being added. Add to this the increasing threat to industrial control systems from malware such as Stuxnet, Flame, Shamoon, and other intentional and accidental cyber hazards, and it is easy to understand why many utility managers feel too confused to even get started toward making their municipality more cyber secure.
