Security Issues, Best Practices and Technology Options Webinars from NRWA

National Rural Water Association (NRWA) is offering a two-part webinar to discuss security and best practices for water and wastewater systems.  Part one will be held on April 18 with Part 2 following on May 16.  Both events will begin at 3PM (eastern).

As the announcement notes, “The security posture of most water/wastewater treatment facilities is weak, regardless of capacity or location.”  The first webinar (Part 1) will explore the motivation behind and the best practices for an appropriate security posture for a water/wastewater facility. It will look at security policies, vulnerabilities and risk management concerns and opportunities and explore the relationship between physical security and information security. Finally it will propose some ideas for developing prudent security policies given the vulnerabilities and risk and suggestions for implementing the appropriate technologies and practices to support the policies, standards and guidelines.  The May 16 event (Part 2) will focus on security technology and defense systems.  Again, as the website reminds us, “Most of us are not defending Fort Knox but taking prudent steps to safeguard operations, information, and personnel should be something every water/wastewater facility can undertake.”

This is a two-part webinar, register for part 1 and 2 here.  Once on this page, click “Register Now” on the right side of the page.  CEUs are also being offered as part of these trainings.
