Protecting The Operational Integrity Of Smart Water Meters

Water utilities face more threats from more actors

Water and wastewater infrastructures and edge devices have become an attractive target to cyber criminals due to increasingly connected infrastructure. Cyber actors range from nation-state actors seeking to cause political and social chaos, to cybercriminals looking for easy financial gain, hacktivists driven by ideological agendas and individuals who seek to reduce their water bills. Moreover, internal threats due to human errors, disgruntled employees or supply chain have become a predominant risk.

Smart meters are vulnerable and can jeopardize the OT and IT network

The increasing adoption of smart water meters paves the way for numerous cyber threats, such as privacy breaches (tracking individual’s activities), fraud attacks (altering consumption to reduce bills), and can potentially serve as an entry point to the IT and OT network. Cyber-attacks on a water infrastructure can compromise drinking water supply, water quality as well as wastewater collection and treatment systems, with devastating consequences to public health and safety. The smart meter infrastructure is also subject to a large amount of  human errors.
