SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions to critical infrastructure facilities with the same technology our partners in the Department of Defense rely on.
Safe drinking water and properly treated wastewater are prerequisites for protecting public health, preventing disease, and protecting the environment. Ensuring the supply of drinking water and wastewater treatment and service is essential to modern life and the Nation’s economy.
The Water and Wastewater Systems Sector is vulnerable to a variety of attacks, including:
The result of any variety of attacks could cause large numbers of illnesses or casualties or a denial of service that would also impact public health. The water and wastewater sector is especially vulnerable to natural disasters as critical services such as firefighting, healthcare, energy, food and agriculture, and transportation systems, would suffer negative impacts from a denial of service in the Water and Wastewater Systems Sector.
The Water and Wastewater Systems Sector-Specific Plan details a risk management framework for each critical infrastructure sector. Each sector has a unique set of characteristics and risk landscape through identity assurance and physical access control systems (PACS).
Each Sector-Specific Agency develops a sector-specific plan through a coordinated effort involving its public and private sector partners. The Environmental Protection Agency is designated as the Sector-Specific Agency for the Water and Wastewater Systems.
