Cybersecurity Information Sharing & Scorecards | WWD Weekly Digest

Jan. 13, 2022
President Biden has made a strong push on cybersecurity in his term. What does this mean for water utilities?

Overshadowed by infrastructure spending and other efforts, President Joe Biden has made a strong push to emphasize the importance of cybersecurity for public and private systems in the U.S. Electric and internet utilities have been at the table for these high level conversations for years and water and wastewater utilities can learn a lot from them.

Charlie Moskowitz, vice president of policy and government affairs for SecurityScorecard, discusses what this increased emphasis on cybersecurity means for water and wastewater utilities and what a utilities size means for their vulnerabilities. He also notes the importance of continuous monitoring and information sharing and where he thinks conversations on cybersecurity will be in several years.
