Benefits of WaterISAC Pro


WaterISAC Pro is THE ONLY centralized, up-to-the-minute resource of its kind serving the water sector.

WaterISAC subscribers receive:

  • Timely email alerts about potential and actual physical or cyber attacks against drinking or wastewater systems
  • Information on water security from federal law enforcement, intelligence, public health and environment agencies
  • Access to an extensive database of information on chemical, biological and radiological agents
  • Notifications about cyber vulnerabilities and technical fixes
  • Research, reports and other water security-related information
  • A highly secure means for quickly reporting incidents
  • Vulnerability assessment tools and resources
  • Guidance about emergency preparedness and response
  • The ability to participate in and review secure electronic forums on water security topics
  • Helpful summaries of open-source security information

WaterISAC's unique position as the central clearinghouse for threats to the water sector provides utilities with added security. It is the one common link in the flow of information about water security to and from utilities, federal homeland security, intelligence, law enforcement, public health and environmental agencies.

All government and WaterISAC alerts about potential or real threats to the nation's water sector are quickly disseminated to WaterISAC subscribers around the clock. WaterISAC is the designated intelligence dissemination arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-sponsored Water Sector Coordinating Council.

Beyond gathering and distributing secure, time-sensitive information, WaterISAC also provides immediate expert analysis of threats to the nation's water systems and identifies trends. Raw information about security threats distributed by law enforcement and government agencies often fails to provide comprehensive details about how a threat may impact a drinking water or wastewater system. The WaterISAC's analysts are experts at intelligence collection. They rapidly produce valuable assessments of how a threat may specifically impact the water community, identify trends and suggest mitigating actions.

The WaterISAC library, containing over 3,000 documents, includes a robust search capability, and offers subscribers a comprehensive collection of information about vulnerabilities, emergency response, training opportunities, security solutions, research and government policy. Subscribers can rapidly study chemicals and potential contaminants, review past and current threat information, utilize vulnerability assessment tools and explore security solutions.
