In the first quarter of 2020, LACROIX organised the ‘Cybersecurity in Smart Water Management’ conference at the Spanish Institute of Engineering in Madrid alongside leading Spanish cybersecurity firms CCI, CNPIC and INCIBE. The event attracted over 80 participants from various sectors, including full water cycle operators, integrators, engineers, consultants and university representatives, its popularity confirming a shared commitment to this strategic theme.
Several areas requiring monitoring as well as promising leads were highlighted by the experts and partners of the event. These included:
In an increasingly connected world of smart water management, where access points to our management systems are multiplying, cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important. Increased awareness and working together appear to be the path proposed by stakeholders to build a more secure environment. Undoubtedly, this conference, which has united key public and private water management stakeholders as well as institutional cybersecurity experts, has helped to further this ambition.”
