Are Local Water Supplies Safe from Cyber Attacks?

Well, that’s a good question. To answer that question, Josiah Cox, a water supply expert and president at Central States Water Resources, joined host Brian Mudd on The Brian Mudd Show on WIOD (610 AM). They talked about the recent cyberattack on a water treatment plant in Florida and the importance of protecting water infrastructure from hackers. 

“That the hackers were able to gain access was really a point of consternation, contention, potential catastrophe,” Cox said on the show. “It was headed off, thankfully, but it is a real risk out there — especially for small municipalities and small communities scattered across the country.” Hear the full interview from July 1, 2021, in the player above.
