Cybersecurity for Utilities

Incorporating Cybersecurity into the DNA of your Organization


Municipal utilities are reliant on technology to deliver the services they provide. Cybersecurity is the duty and obligation of any organization handling confidential information from its customer base. Utilities need to ensure the appropriate security controls are in place to adequately protect that confidential information from cyber-thieves whose goal is to steal and profit from this information. Appropriate controls need to be in place to protect an organization from a cyber-attack. If your utility understand this responsibility but needs some assistance in implementing an effective cybersecurity plan, SBS CyberSecurity and Heartland can help.
