IMA Webinar Broadcast: A Mass Casualty Threat? The Risk to Water Infrastructure from Cyber Hackers

May 31, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

During an April 2020 cyberattack on Israel’s water infrastructure, Iranian hackers tried to increase chlorine levels in the water flowing to residential areas. Hundreds of people would have been at risk of getting sick had the attack succeeded.

This webinar will present two case studies from Israel on technological solutions that were deployed to mitigate threats to its water infrastructure. One case study focuses on how “smart water” and cyber solutions can be deployed concurrently to build cybersecurity into digital deployments. The second case study looks at how the Israel Water Authority deployed a technology that uses unhackable electrical signals of the water treatment process, and by leveraging advanced AI engines and machine learning, can detect initial evolutions of anomalies in the process behavior and send out alerts.
