Secure the Grid Coalition

Our nation is blessed to have @SenAngusKing on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, providing oversight to @FERC. As Michael Mabee writes here, the #CyberSecurity hearing reveals that LITTLE has been done in past decade to protect the electric grid: michaelmabee.info/senate-cybersecurity-hearing/

Senator Angus S. King, Jr.
Yesterday, the Energy and Natural Resources Committee held a hearing on the importance of defending ourselves from cyberattacks – but the hearing seemed to lack the appropriate urgency. I tried to sound the alarm and change that. WATCH:

This is the most urgent threat to our country today. Harden the G.D. grid NOW!

Amazing the money we pay out for nothing.

To #SecureTheGrid, @FERC must perform their regulatory duties like every other Federal regulator. Imagine if @FAASafetyBriefs reported aviation mishaps & malfunctions but covered up the names of the companies responsible? That's what's happening...read: michaelmabee.info/nerc-coverup-investigation-report/ ... See MoreSee Less

President Trump! Please drain the swamp at @FERC. They have obstructed the resilience efforts of @SecretaryPerry and your administration. Security experts agree. You should nominate Thomas Popik as the new FERC Commissioner! He'll help you #SecureTheGrid!

Our electrical grid is in dire need of protection.

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Are you at Secure the Grid Coalition doing anything to help? Have you spoken with the President about this? Do it. Ask for a meeting.

Sadly, this won't happen. The grid, public works, etc is vulnerable and nobody wants to pay the bill. We live in very scary times.

Everything we have is vulnerable...When you buy a loaf of bread unless its made by Pepperridge Farm or the likes ..The bread is sealed with a twist tie...You have no idea how vulnerable our everyday uses are..

Save the EMP Commission!

America: The DOD and HASC has failed you!

American needs you to save the EMP CommissionAt a time when nuclear-capable North Korea threatens the United States daily with the prospect of a high altitude nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack (which they have been rehearsing for much of the past decade), and as the sun continues to produce technology-killing geomagnetic solar storms, and as both state and non-state sponsored hackers continue to penetrate our grid with malicious and potentially devastating cyber attacks, the House Armed Services Committee and Department of Defense have, as of July 31, 2017, dismantled the only honest arbiter working to get the dysfunctional federal government to address these growing threats – The Congressional EMP Commission.

To learn more about this critical failure of the DOD and HASC and what YOU can do to help, please visit the “Take Action!” tab and download the “Save the EMP Commission” PDF.

Attacks on Electrical Substations

Attacks on electrical substations have underscored one of America’s most serious vulnerabilities:  If the power goes off and stays off, our Nation and the vast majority of its population will cease to exist.

In addition to natural causes (geomagnetic disturbances (GMD) a.k.a. solar storms), the grid can be seriously disrupted for prolonged periods by four man-made events, including physical assaults, radio frequency devices (RFD), cyberattack, and high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP).  Such events could disrupt and/or destroy outright key parts of the power grid, prompting the cascading collapse of substations and effecting every one of the other 15 critical infrastructures that assure the availability of water, food, medicine, finance, transportation, telecommunications, etc., possibly for years.

The good news is that we know how to fix the electric grid’s vulnerabilities. Known and relatively affordable technologies can protect our power grid and the 21st Century American economy, society and people that absolutely depend upon it.

Learn about the threatand what you can do about it.

Our Nation’s 16 Critical Infrastructure Sectors are:

  • Energy
  • Defense Industrial Base
  • Communications
  • Healthcare & Public Health
  • Emergency Services
  • Water & Wastewater Systems
  • Transportation Systems
  • Food & Agriculture
  • Information Technology
  • Financial Services
  • Nuclear Reactors, Materials & Waste
  • Chemical
  • Commercial Facilities
  • Critical Manufacturing
  • Dams
  • Government Facilities

These infrastructures are dependent on electricity and technology.

“The more I looked into it, the more I came to the conclusion that the federal and state governments have done little or nothing to prepare for anything other than the natural disasters we experience every year and that a cyberattack would potentially be far, far worse”.
