WaterISAC has released its latest Quarterly Water Sector Incident Report, which examines incidents and suspicious activities affecting water and wastewater utilities between July 1 and September 30, 2019. The report, informed by a survey of WaterISAC member utilities, describes these incidents and provides WaterISAC’s assessment of threats currently facing the sector. A total of 46 organizations participated in the survey with respondents from 24 U.S. states, Australia, and New Zealand.
The report notes that approximately 20 percent of respondents experienced a physical security incident and approximately 38 percent experienced a cybersecurity incident. It also included incident information from public sources, other information sharing and analysis centers, and federal, state, and local government partners.
