Transition of water distribution systems (WDS) to smarter and integrated networks has added cyber layers to these infrastructures, increasing their susceptibility to cyberattacks. In this paper, available cybersecurity vulnerability assessment tools and methods for WDSs are first reviewed and their strengths and shortcomings are identified and investigated. This is followed by a review of assessment tools developed in other comparable sectors, such as smart electric grids, for the purpose of knowledge transfer. Cybersecurity vulnerabilities in water networks are defined, and new cybersecurity vulnerability assessment methods are recommended based on the critical review performed, and the best practices and lessons learned from other comparable sectors.
