North American Resilience TAG Program
Wednesday, 10 June 2020
The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and Isle Utilities are excited to invite utilities to participate in the Resilience TAG (Technology Approval Group) Series.
As essential businesses, utilities must build the resilience they need to ensure continuous operations of their critical infrastructure. Focusing on the themes of emergency preparedness/response, cybersecurity, asset management and infrastructure, our three-part program will give utilities the exclusive opportunity to review cultivated solutions through live demonstrations, peer-to-peer interaction, and networking with top technology providers during two virtual workshops and one in-person event.
Each TAG workshop will be broken into two parts: the Risk & Resilience Certificate Program portion will provide a foundation for supporting water utilities in the development of an all-hazards approach to risk and resilience management. The certificate program is based on several AWWA standards and associated resources (G430, G440, J100, and Cybersecurity Guidance) that facilitate compliance with provisions of America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA), including the completion of a risk and resilience assessment and emergency response plan. Participants who attend each of the three-part series will receive the AWWA Risk & Resilience Certificate.
- TAG 1: All-Hazards Response | Tuesday, August 18, 2020
- TAG 2: Cybersecurity | November 2020
- TAG 3: Risk & Resilience | February 2021 (co-located with the Utility Management Conference)
The technology component will feature novel solutions that have been independently vetted and curated to the theme of each meeting. Selected solution providers will present a technical summary, demonstration where applicable, and highlight the business case for their solution.
Participants who complete the three-part program will also receive the AWWA Risk & Resilience Certificate, providing a foundation in the sound risk and resilience management strategies that facilitate compliance with AWIA.
