Video – CIA concerns over smart grid

Power Struggle

Thalia Assuras from EnergyNow.com sat down with former CIA Director James Woolsey to discuss the current state of the nation’s electric grid and its vulnerabilities. Woolsey says the federal government’s oversight of grid security is inadequate and attacks on the grid are “entirely possible.

“No one in charge of security for the grid, whether it’s cyber or transformers or whatever. You can search forever through the federal code to try to find who that person might be.”

“And a so-called ‘Smart Grid’ that is as vulnerable as what we’ve got is not smart at all, it’s a really, really stupid grid.”
