By now you’ve seen the news about the largest gas pipeline in the US being shut down by a Russian based cyber-attack. It has affected 17 states, and as much as half of the east coast will run out of gas in a matter of days. More importantly, it has laid bare just how vulnerable the critical energy infrastructure of the US is, and the scariest part is that worst is yet to come.
The United States Department of Defense has been warning about attacks on critical US infrastructure for decades, and I’ve been writing about it consistently for years; cyber-attacks, hard attacks, domestic and/or foreign terrorist attacks, etc. Yet what have all the warnings yielded? Well, it’s a tale of two stories depending on whether you are examining the residential sector or the commercial/industrial sector.
In the commercial/industrial sector it has been taken very seriously, and virtually all Fortune 5,000 companies, data centers, military bases and government offices have installed emergency backup power systems and protocols. However, in the residential sector the warnings have too often resulted in little more than laughter, disregard, and ridicule. Yet as much as American consumers would like to remain in a state of denial about the very real threats that we face, such attacks can no longer be considered “Tin Hat” conspiracy theories. The threats are real, the consequences can and will be deadly, and no sector is more vulnerable to attack or will impact the country more severely than an attack on our country’s electric grid.
