Today, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a fact sheet: Free Cyber Vulnerability Scanning for Water Utilities, developed in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Water Sector Coordinating Council and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators. The document and promotional messaging are intended to drive water sector enrollment in CISA’s free vulnerability scanning program.

The fact sheet includes information on the benefits of the program, which include pinpointing internet-exposed assets, detecting vulnerabilities, and receiving insightful weekly status reports. The fact sheet also explains how to the program works, provides instructions on how to get started, and provides additional resources and contact guidance to request more information.
