This week we will be continuing our journey to develop and communicate a cyber-security improvement plan in our case study assignment for PureLand Chemical. During week-5, we’ll be developing and submitting a description of the areas of weakness that will be the focus for improvements within the plan. 1. First, read the document titled, Site summary report PureLand Wastewater. 2. Using the information in the Site summary report document in addition to your own knowledge of PureLand Wastewater, write a two page summary of the security improvements you recommend for PureLand chemical to ensure better security and compliance. 3. This recommended security improvements will be a part of your cyber-security improvement plan and you should strive to provide a clear and concise description of a minimum of five recommended improvement areas and what you recommend to improve security. 4.

PureLand Wastewater Treatment
As a consultant of the PureLand Wastewater for refining the Cybersecurity owing to
novel “CFATS regulations” from the “US Department of Homeland Security.” The “PureLand
Wastewater” is an organization giving years of involvement in all parts of Wastewater Treatment
with extraordinary accentuation on the “Chemical Manufacturing and Biological Fermentation”
businesses. It changed as of late when PureLand officials and operations people reach by the
“Division of Homeland Security” (DHS) on a particularly harmful substance they use to sterilize
Wastewater in organically perilous procedures Chlorine Dioxide. DHS authorities were mindful
of their utilization of the synthetic in light of freely available waste treatment licenses given to
PureLand by the EPA (dhs, 2016) .
The Current State of Security
PureLand has superior security worries because of the exceedingly dangerous nature of
a portion of the chemicals they use to sanitize and treat wastewater streams for their clients.
Albeit Physical Security has dependably been on their radar and reliable, Cyber Security has not
been something that they were mainly worried. PureLand knew Chlorine Dioxide was an
exceptionally dangerous concoction, yet they had never considered Cyber Terrorism or robbery
of the compound for harm when finishing earlier hazard appraisals. The ramifications of this
were very genuine for PureLand, as they now are required by Federal law to conform to both
Physical and Cyber Security directions identified with their utilization of this substance of
interest. DHS authorities made PureLand mindful of their commitments and educated them that
they would be liable to a review by DHS inside eighteen months that would survey their
consistency with CFATS controls (dhs, 2016)
