"Biden Administration Moves To Boost Cybersecurity Of Water Systems"

"The Biden administration on Thursday announced a new plan to secure U.S. water systems from cyberattacks, part of a broader effort to defend elements of domestic critical infrastructure from digital threats.

The White House and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a new “action plan” for the water sector that aims to encourage water utilities to adopt technology that helps detect cyber threats to industrial control systems, or ICS, early on. The administration intends to implement the plan over 100 days, according to the White House.

The administration is also trying to boost information sharing about cyber threats between owners and operators of water utilities and the federal government."
