The Foundation for Resilient Societies is dedicated to cost-effective protection of technologically-advanced societies from infrequently occurring natural and man-made disasters. Our current area of emphasis is protection of the U.S. electric grid and also protection of nuclear power plants during long-term loss of outside commercial grid power. Our primary mission is scientific research and education.
Adversaries calculate EMP attack contingencies as sub categories of economic warfare. Leading economic warfare expert, Kevin Freeman blogs frequently on the relationship between grid security and and economic warfare.
The best way to deter and defend against an asymmetric or conventional HEMP attack is with a robust missile defense program. Ambassador Hank Cooper provides extensive educational resources on EMP threat tracking.

EMPact America is a bipartisan, non-profit (with IRS 501(c)4 status) organization for citizens concerned about protecting the American people from a nuclear or natural electromagnetic pulse (EMP) catastrophe. Two Congressional Commissions, the EMP Commission and the Strategic Posture Commission, have warned that terrorists, rogue states, China and Russia could, using a single crude nuclear weapon delivered by a primitive missile, inflict an EMP attack that would cause the collapse of critical civilian infrastructures–such as infrastructures for electric power, telecommunications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water–across the entire continental United States, that are vital alike for the sustenance of our modern society and the survival of its citizens.
