Mutual Aid Agreement
WaterISAC has released 15 Cybersecurity Fundamentals for Water and Wastewater Utilites
July 1, 2019

The Water Information Sharing and Analysis Center (WaterISAC) is a joint effort of our major national professionals organizations (NRWA, AWWA,WEF, NACWA, AMWA). Established in 2002 shortly after 9/11 and in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this is our national clearinghouse of all things related to water and wastewater security.



WaterISAC has released 15 Cybersecurity Fundamentals for Water and Wastewater Utilities. The free guide, the successor to WaterISAC’s flagship 10 Basic Cybersecurity Practices to Reduce Exploitable Weaknesses and Attacks, compiles dozens of essential security practices into 15 key categories. Each of the categories also includes links to relevant external resources to further support utility security efforts. Practices and resources identified within the guide can aid utilities in complying with cybersecurity components of the risk and resilience assessment and emergency response plan requirements under America’s Water Infrastructure Act. The guide is publicly available to all interested parties on WaterISAC’s website. (https://www.waterisac.org/fundamentals)
