It was written this week by Joseph Marks, Reporter for The Cybersecurity 202 newsletter, that U.S. municipalities need to remain in a heightened sense of awareness against cyber attacks. The article referenced the 2021 breach of Oldsmar Florida and recent interviews with senior administration officials. It quoted them as saying “There is absolutely inadequate cyber resilience across the water sector. … The threshold of resilience is not what it needs to be to meet threats today,” and that with these highly vulnerable systems the hackers could contaminate the drinking water of 10’s to 100’s of thousands of U.S. citizens.
