Hitachi Review

Highlight

Water and sewage are important parts of the social infrastructure, and a variety of initiatives are being considered for overcoming the business challenges they face. One such challenge is the consolidation of their operations, with reports having been prepared in Japan that consider organizational consolidation from a variety of perspectives. When considering the opportunities for interconnecting existing systems that come with consolidation, cybersecurity measures are essential. With security threats becoming more diverse, the changing business environment represented by consolidation means that security measures need to be considered when connecting what were previously closed systems through reconstruction, etc. Hitachi is working on security measures for its monitoring and control systems, paying attention to security trends in the water and sewage industries.
