Security/Vulnerability Assessments

sva_picThe EPA has mandated that all drinking water systems that serve a population greater than 3,300 provide certification that a Vulnerability Assessment (VA) has been conducted. Vulnerability Assessments are designed to help utilities identify and defend potential threats to their critical assets, such as terrorist activities, vandalism, natural disasters, and system failures such as equipment and SCADA system outages. PPM has been trained in the RAM-WSM Vulnerability Assessment method and is qualified to use this protocol for security evaluations of water and wastewater utilities.
