  • WannaCry And NotPetya Demand A Cybersecurity Strategy
    WannaCry And NotPetya Demand A Cybersecurity Strategy

    The need for a solid cybersecurity strategy has been discussed and debated for almost a half a century now, and yet the basic worm-type attacks first documented back in 1972 are still with us today. Why? Because even the most basic measures to protect control systems from these types of attacks are still not systematically employed.

  • Securing Industrial Systems In A Digital World
    Securing Industrial Systems In A Digital World

    The development of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) over the past two decades has changed the face of many industries. Operation Technology (OT) — largely industrial equipment — has become increasingly connected, and the integration of Information Technology (IT) components allows such devices to leverage software that drives data collection and analysis, resulting in enhanced performance and ultimately "smarter" machines.

  • Cybersecurity Importance On The Rise In Water Utility Operations
    Cybersecurity Importance On The Rise In Water Utility Operations

    As water utilities migrate toward remote system monitoring and real-time control, the risks associated with cybersecurity tick upward as well. While the rewards of digitalization offer real promise, the associated complexity and security concerns pose corresponding risks. That is why it is important to have an overall risk-management process for the organizational level, the business process level, and for the information system and data levels as well. 

  • How Alarmed Should You Be About Operator Effectiveness?
    How Alarmed Should You Be About Operator Effectiveness?

    As water and wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) processes and control systems become more sophisticated, maximizing operator effectiveness becomes more complex as well. A well-planned alarm and control strategy can make a significant difference between valuable decision-making information and confusing, disjointed, data points. This article highlights key strategies for foreseeing problems in advance, fixing them faster, and having a higher success rate by maximizing operator effectiveness.

  • Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments
    Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments

    In water plant operations, there’s no such thing as simply maintaining the status quo. Any utility that is not moving forward is falling behind. Whether a water treatment or wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) chooses to rely on in-house resources or outside specialists, here are some lifecycle management approaches they can use to upgrade control capabilities without compromising performance or return on investment. 

  • Prioritizing Alarm Responses For Better Workforce Management
    Prioritizing Alarm Responses For Better Workforce Management

    While the laws of physics and chemistry have not changed, the ways that water and wastewater treatment plants (WTPs/WWTPs) are being forced to deal with them certainly have — e.g., disinfection byproducts (DBPs), tighter turbidity standards, harmful algal blooms, and PFAS challenges. Even when plant throughput stays the same, the demands on plant personnel continue to increase. Here’s how evolving toward better workforce management processes can help.
