Smart Grid Will Make The Country More Susceptible To a Cyber Attack

The Mix: Cyber-terrorism's Threat from Energy NOW on Vimeo.

According to Vimeo:

"A cyber-terrorism attack could cripple America’s electric grid, shutting down everything from communications to transportation to law enforcement. U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says such an attack could be America’s “next Pearl Harbor.” Are we prepared to protect our power system against a cyber attack?

Anchor Thalia Assuras talks with former CIA Director James Woolsey about the security measures being used to counter the threat and how smart grid technology could make the country more susceptible to attack."
