Ensuring Data Safety in Managing Environmental Issues

At AquaWatch, we harness the power of data to provide bespoke, cutting-edge solutions that help water companies and other stakeholders manage environmental challenges effectively. However, the sharing and handling of this data come with significant risks that must be carefully managed.

The Risks of Sharing Telemetry Data

Water companies in the UK facing new CSO Monitoring regulations, in response to Section 82 of the Environment Act, face substantial risks when it comes to sharing telemetry data. Telemetry data automatically collects, transmits and measures data from remote sources, using sensors and other devices to collect data. Communication systems are then used to transmit the data back to a central location. Risks of telemetry data include:

  • Cybersecurity Threats: Unauthorised access to telemetry data can lead to data breaches, compromising sensitive information and potentially disrupting operations.

  • Data Integrity Issues: Insecure data transfer methods can result in data loss or corruption, undermining the reliability of the information used for decision-making.

  • Regulatory Non-Compliance: Failure to protect data adequately can lead to non-compliance with regulatory requirements, resulting in legal and financial repercussions.

Secure Data Management with AquaWatch

To mitigate these risks, it is crucial to use a provider that ensures secure data collection, transfer, and delivery. At AquaWatch, we prioritise the security and integrity of our CSO data monitoring services as part of our core offering.

Secure Data Collection and Transfer:

  • All data collected by our sensors is encrypted before transmission, ensuring that it remains secure from the point of collection to delivery.

  • We use robust and secure communication protocols to transfer data, minimizing the risk of interception or tampering.

Reliable Data Delivery:

  • Our systems perform regular integrity checks to ensure that the data delivered is accurate and complete.

  • Data is stored in secure, redundant systems that protect against loss and unauthorised access.
