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”.
