In recognizing the risks that cyber threats create for the water sector, the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (the Cyber Centre) has engaged Deloitte Canada to conduct a nation-wide study to understand the state of cyber security within some sectors that make up Canada’s critical infrastructure.

If you are one of the key stakeholders in supporting Canada’s water sector, they would like to invite you to participate in this study by responding to a series of questions. The study is intended to gain an understanding of the crucial role you play within the water sector and assess, at a high-level, your cyber security maturity posture. The questionnaire should take approximately 1 hour to complete.
