Speakers

SESSION 1 – Opening and introduction to the challenges

Pro-Rector, NMBU | Norway

Prof. Øysten Johnsen

Access to safe water is a legal entitlement according to the UN, which significantly focuses on the water sector through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Despite modern water infrastructure and increasing investments in improving them, secure and safe water supply and adequate wastewater treatment are at risk by cyber and physical threats. NMBU is educating future water professionals and collaborating with many universities worldwide in collaboration with utilities, industries and public administrations. NMBU is proud to be an initiator of this timely gathering of water utility specialists.

Rector, USUCT | Ukraine

Prof. Oleksandr Pivovarov

There is a great need for awareness raising among the NATO’s partner countries on cyber and physical security in water infrastructure. Many utilities are even vulnerable to technical errors, and with the insecurities presented by cyber-attacks and physical threats these systems become even more vulnerable. Having experienced the Chernobyl disaster at close hold, and recently starting the only teaching program in atomic energy in Ukraine, I will also share aspects of radioactive safety on water. It is an honour to be a co-host of this very important event.

Professor, NMBU | Norway

Prof. Harsha Ratnaweera

Despite the fact that almost 100 countries have or are in the process of developing Water Safety Plans, the focus on cyber and physical security remains quite limited – especially in Asian, African and Eurasian countries. Many of these countries are constructing and upgrading centralized water and wastewater treatment plants with increasing levels of automation, remote surveillance and remote control that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The presentation will give examples from various regions in the world.

Prof. Kala Vairavamoorthy

IWA – International Water Assocation- is the world’s largest member organisation on water which unites over 10 000 professionals and practitioners from 130 countries. Water underpins every aspect of human and environmental existence. The severe water challenges facing the world today require an unprecedented global response. The situation becomes even more vulnerable with increasing cyber threats and physical threats intrinsically linked to natural and human/technical errors, human health and the water environment. IWA is working to increase awareness among its members and also to motivate research, innovation and development partners to be more creative in finding solutions.

President, EWA | Portugal
