This course will examine the drinking water and electricity infrastructures, and various policies that have been developed to help guide and strengthen their cybersecurity programs. The drinking water and electricity infrastructures are two of fourteen subsectors comprising what are known as "lifeline infrastructure". The 2013 National Infrastructure Protection Plan identifies four lifeline infrastructure sectors: 1) water, 2) energy, 3) transportation, and 4) communications. These sectors are designated "lifeline" because many other infrastructures depend upon them. The drinking water subsector is part of the water sector, and the electricity subsector is part of the energy sector. Both subsectors are overseen by the Department of Homeland Security National Protection and Programs Directorate which manages the DHS National Infrastructure Protection Program. The NIPP employs a five-step continuous improvement program called the Risk Management Framework. NIPP implementation is overseen by DHS-designated Sector-Specific Agencies staffed by various Federal departments. The Sector-Specific Agencies work in voluntary cooperation with industry representatives to apply the Risk Management Framework and document results in corresponding Sector-Specific Plans. The program began in 2007 and the most recent Sector-Specific Plans were published in 2016. In February 2013, President Obama issued Executive 13636 directing the National Institute of Standards and Technology to develop a voluntary set of recommendations for strengthening infrastructure cybersecurity measures. EO13636 also asked Federal agencies with regulating authority to make a recommendation whether the NIST Cybersecurity Framework should be made mandatory. The Environmental Protection Agency who is both the SSA and regulatory authority for the drinking water subsector recommended voluntary application of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The Department of Energy who is both the SSA and regulatory authority for the electricity subsector replied that it was already implementing the Electricity Subsector Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model, which indeed was what the NIST Cybersecurity Framework was based on. The Department of Energy, though, recommended voluntary application of the ES-C2M2. This module will examine both the drinking water and electricity lifeline infrastructure subsectors, and elements and application of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and ES-C2M2.

Principais avaliações do CYBERSECURITY POLICY FOR WATER AND ELECTRICITY INFRASTRUCTURES
The instructor is very knowledgeable on subject matter. Only issue is the course is somewhat abbreviated, because of the large content of information regarding cybersecurity.
Great course, very informative and engaging with good optional material. I think there could be more content and more practice questions for a deeper learning experience.
This course was very instructive. Teaching materials was good and very understanding for any one who is ready to learn . Never regretted taking this course . Am grateful
Excellent overview of Cybersecurity as it pertains to the water and electricity parts of North American Infrastructure.
MORE ON CYBERSECURITY AND CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WAS LEARNED AND WILL ENHANCE INVESTIGATION AND ANALYTIC SKILLS
Excellent course related to the subject of Cybersecurity application in Water and Electricity Infrastructures
