Earlier this year, USA TODAY published their findings of a review they conducted of federal energy records, wherein they learned that the nation’s power grid is struck by either a cyber or physical attack every four days. As they reported, a significant outage that lasted even just a handful of days could disable a wide variety of devices, and lives would be placed in jeopardy for a variety of reasons, to include a compromise of the systems used to facilitate heating, air conditioning, and health care needs.
As a matter of fact, in a recent meeting of electric-power providers, it was revealed that ISIS has, in fact, attempted to hack into the U.S. power grid. The group has been unsuccessful so far, but as Karl Stephan, PhD, of the Engineering Ethics Blog recently wrote, “…the mere fact that they're trying has some grim implications.” Stephan goes on to pointedly state that “the danger that foreign and domestic terrorist organizations could cause massive power blackouts in the U.S. is real.”
