Cipher Brief Cyber Advisory Board members offer their views on threats to the U.S. power grid, as interviewed by Cipher Brief Publisher and CEO Suzanne Kelly.

Former Deputy Secretary of State Robert Work, a member of The Cipher Brief’s Cyber Advisory Board, says potential attacks on the U..S power grid would most likely come in two flavors. “A localized attack, such as an attack on a city’s power grid, could be mounted by any number of malicious hackers, minor states or terrorists.

Counterforce targeting goes after an opponent’s military forces and capabilities.”
