Cyber Security, privacy & Compliance

Read report

Water authorities are responsible for the regional waters, such as canals and polder canals. For example, they ensure that the water is clean so that the fish stock remains at the same level. Water authorities also protect the land from flooding and ensure that farmers have enough water for their crops. The Netherlands keeps its feet dry, thanks to the water authorities.

Meeting these tasks is no longer possible without digitalization and automation, which immediately entails risks. In short: the challenges facing water authorities are countless.

In this Whitepaper, Audittrail covers several topics in the field of (cyber)security, privacy, compliance, and awareness. Topics that they think will be essential for water authorities, now or in the future.
