ALERT NOTIFICATIONS – 24/7
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.
Above and beyond gathering and distributing secure, time-sensitive information,
WaterISAC also provides quick 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 detail about how a threat may impact a drinking 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.
