Drinking water and wastewater systems are an essential community lifeline. It is important to protect your system from cyberattacks to maintain its vital operations. You can reduce the risk of a cyberattack at your utility by externally scanning your networks for vulnerabilities caused by publicly facing devices. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) can help your drinking water and wastewater system identify and address vulnerabilities with a no cost vulnerability scanning service subscription. CISA, the Water Sector Coordinating Council, and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators encourage drinking water and wastewater utilities to use this service.
CISA has published a Free Cyber Vulnerability Scanning for Water Utilities fact sheet, developed in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Water Sector Coordinating Council (WSCC) and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA). It explains the process and benefits of signing up for CISA's free vulnerability scanning program.
