ENERGY BRAINTRUST: Electric Grids Increasingly Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

The discussion will include government and industry leaders who will discuss the consequences of electric grid failures caused by cyberattacks or natural disasters, and the risks posed to black and brown communities who may have fewer resources to pay the high costs associated with prolonged power disruption. The Colonial pipeline cyberattack and last year’s SolarWinds attack along with this year’s February ice storm make it clear that our electric infrastructure is vulnerable and in need of significant security upgrades and extensive support to protect consumers from similar events in the future.
