Resource Roundup: Cybersecurity for Small Businesses and Water/Wastewater Sector

Resource Roundup: Cybersecurity for small businesses and the water/wastewater sector

In her article, Cybersecurity Begs to be Acknowledged in the Water/Wastewater Sector, Jessica Leimer, RWAU Training Specialist, says, "The cybersecurity topic seems so outlandish and becomes an afterthought, until you are faced with it, and then it is too late." (pg. 20). In the wake of recent cyberattacks on water utilities in Florida and Kansas, it is more crucial than ever to have resources for small businesses to better understand cybersecurity in order to protect your business and reduce the risk of a cyber attack.
