"The Fujitsu Cyber Threat Intelligence service has allowed Scottish Water to strengthen our overall security posture and provides us with the level of detection and prevention services that meets our needs."
Tom Porteous, Head of Customer Services, Scottish Water
Scottish Water provides drinking water to 2.45 million households and 154,000 business customers in Scotland. Every day it supplies 1.3 billion litres of drinking water and takes away 840 million litres of waste water from customers’ properties and treats it before returning it to the environment. It is a publicly owned company, answerable to the Scottish Parliament and the people of Scotland, and employs over 3,600 people.
When Scottish Water users accidentally introduced a new virus to its network, the company needed to act fast to minimise the damage and quickly remove the new strain of crypto-malware.
Scottish Water activated the Fujitsu Cyber Threat Intelligence service, which immediately identified the source of the unknown malware variant, cleaned infected devices and worked with Symantec to create a signature that would block it.
