Renowned Cybersecurity Expert: “ICS cyber security is the second coming of the Maginot Line – and the Chinese have breached it.” This would be a good topic for investigation by @SecretsBedard and other journalists sounding the alarm on grid vulnerability! https://t.co/bJP86bsmcs
Glad to see that @SecretsBedard and @CPDChina are sounding the alarm about Communist China's real and present threat of a "knock out punch" to America by using EMP to attack our unprotected electric grid.
We MUST Secure the Grid or we just invite this aggression!
President @realDonaldTrump and those who want a secure electric grid should be aware that @lisamurkowski's campaign got BIG $$$ by the electric industry. Now her legislation will help them cover-up their security violations.
Is $$$ why she protects them?
The @CyberSolarium led by @SenAngusKing, @RepGallagher, and @JimLangevin made clear that #cybersecurity vulnerabilities can no longer be ignored. Yet
bill S.3688 in Senate Energy Committee will ENSURE they're not only ignored, but COVERED UP! Read here: https://t.co/ukBsPTEnZX
The Iranian’s appear to have just rehearsed a decades-old technique developed by the Soviets which would use what appears to be a peaceful satellite launch as a method of conducting an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against the US homeland, taking down our electric grid, its communications, and every other critical life sustaining infrastructure with it. Thankfully, this week we also learned of a new report by the Foundation for Resilient Societies, who found that it is technically feasible and affordable for us to protect this communications and grid infrastructure from EMP.

Michael Mabee is right. An important thing that many people don’t realize: our critical infrastructures - including the electric grid- are dependent on the private sector. If enough of our businesses go down (for any reason) we all go down with them.
Seems like President Trump could use imminent domain laws to force each independent utility to harden their area of transmission lines once and for all. Pay them to do it with tax money so they don't go broke doing it. According to Dr. Peter Pry it can be done for around 4 billion dollars. A drop in the bucket that might literally save America!
one of the most important and dangerous threats to America
Are YOUR state's utility commissioners serving the PUBLIC interest by supporting TRANSPARENCY? Find out by reading this excellent article by US Army Command Sergeant Major (ret.) Michael Mabee It's time ALL 50 states did!!
And the national electrical grid is still completely vulnerable to EMP attack by virtually any terrorist state --- including Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. An EMP attack will destroy the system and shut down all power, with AT LEAST a 90% death rate for all Americans. Meanwhile, back at the hacienda, our alleged "leaders" have been jerking us off and blowing smoke up our ass --- for decades.
Problemy not, investing in securing the grid isn't exactly HIGH priority #1 for most Power Companies. Don't fix it till it's broke is their mentalities.
The people need to know about the electric grid. But politicans want to make America into a helpless third World Country. so they are letting it be brought down by our enemies right before our own eyes.
After 10+ years worth of grid security legislation DYING in Congress, Retired US Army Command Sergeant Major Michael Mabee makes it clear just why: MONEY TALKS. See how much the industry spent just last year to influence Congress NOT Secure the Grid against threats like EMP. Read it here: michaelmabee.info/money-talks-grid-security-walks/... See MoreSee Less
