Snohomish County Public Utility District is partnering with the Washington National Guard in piloting a critical infrastructure cybersecurity partnership program. This program draws on the region’s military and information technology talent to increase cybersecurity awareness in support of local government entities and county residents.
As part of the program, the Washington National Guard will conduct a cybersecurity assessment of the PUD's information technology networks, which support critical infrastructure. The assessment is scheduled to occur in August 2020. Following the assessment, the National Guard will provide a report of findings and recommendations to the PUD, which will help it strengthen the cybersecurity of the services that its customers rely upon.
The PUD is excited to partner with the Washington National Guard in the building of strategies to increase the cyber-resiliency of the nation.
