Cyber attack threats on US electrical grid

A recent report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has outlined a potentially devastating attack on the country’s electrical grid system. The report outlines the current efforts in place to defend the national grid as well as how to plan and prepare for an attack. If the grid was attacked, it could result in a blackout across all 50 states, putting the lives of many American’s at risk. Such an attack could come in the form of a ‘cyber attack’ or a ‘solar storm’ causing a huge spike of electric currents, paralysing the system.
