  • Actually: here in the U.S. they are probably becoming LESS so as our government is very concerned about the consequences of cyber attacks on infrastructure and (and, basically, ANY strategically-important resource or utility) is spending a lot of money and expert manpower in protecting our country from such things. Note: UNLIKE most businesses, which are pretty much left to "fend for themselves" when it comes to PREVENTION of cyber attacks.

      Thanks for sharing! The US electric grid faces significant cybersecurity risks from a variety of actors, including criminals, terrorists, hacktivists and foreign governments. The power grid is vulnerable to cyberattacks that could cause catastrophic, widespread and lengthy blackouts. What there is to "note" - despite the years of preparation, Ukraine’s electric grid became an easy target for Russian hackers.

      There is little doubt that we are much better defended against such things than is Ukraine. *** Still: there is ALSO no doubt that threat exists. Fortunately, the U.S. is doing it's best to "stay on top of that", and as far as I can tell they are doing a VERY good job (not a PERFECT job, mind, but a VERY good job).

      Nobody buys your sugar-coated remarks. Threats will always exist, which is why behind a rising number of power outages are new stresses on the system caused by aging power lines, a changing climate and a power-plant fleet rapidly going green. Quote: "(not a PERFECT job, mind, but a VERY good job)." The common sense in it: what is not "perfect" is bound for errors and malfunctions. *Facepalm*

      So...you speak for everyone? (sigh) Seriously: you should consider dismounting from your high horse. It really doesn't suit you.

      Don't take it wrong. I appreciate your answers and everyone else's. Just because I ask questions does not mean I don't know the answers. I am curious to see what users have to say, so carry on.
  • I don't think so?

      Thanks for sharing! Think again.
  • The US has more power outages than any other developed country rundown poor infrastructure ,the inability for supply to keep up to demand is more of a problem than cyberattacks
  • any computer controlled item can be attacked
