Water management & drinking water
Water boards play a vital role in the Dutch society. But what do water boards actually do? They ensure dry feet on the one hand and clean surface water on the other. Since its foundation, almost 10 years ago, Hudson Cybertec has assisted various water boards in making and maintaining process automation environments digitally resilient. The digital resilience of water boards is essential because a cyber attack on a water board can have major consequences.
Cyber criminals, for example, open or close a flood defense, which can cause a large part of the Netherlands to flood. These consequences are therefore incalculable. This is why Hudson Cybertec is committed to the digital resilience of the water sector in order to protect the water boards from the risks and consequences of various cyber attacks.
It’s better to prevent than cure all dangers that could affect the digital resilience of the water sector! Hudson Cybertec, the independent Cybersecurity supplier for companies with operational technology, can help water boards with years of experience. One of the first tasks, in addition to the digital resilience of the systems themselves, is the (additional) training of employees. Because if employees don’t know that they make mistakes, you cannot blame them. The knowledge is simply not there at that moment. Hudson Cybertec offers cyber awareness training for many target groups. Employees can learn everything about digital resilience for Industrial Automation & Control Systems (IACS). Hudson Cybertec thus creates cyber awareness for the digital resilience of an IACS environment. The safe way is the only way!
Drinking water companies in the Netherlands ensure that the population has access to clean and safe drinking water 24/7. But what if the digital resilience of a drinking water company is not in order? In that case there will be a chance that drinking water will be polluted. Hudson Cybertec has already helped many drinking water companies with the security challenges they face, both within the IT environment and the OT environment, or process automation.
A cyber attack can cause undrinkable tapwater. There was a recent attack in the United States in which cyber criminals were able to add far too many chemicals to the drinking water by manipulating a drinking water treatment plant. The consequences of this can be very serious: people can get sick from drinking tapwater. To prevent these types of attacks and improve the digital resilience of the water sector, Hudson Cybertec offers a unique monitoring tool called OT Insight. The online world is changing rapidly, do you change with it?
