Cyberthreats & Homeland Security: Stopping A Digital Pearl Harbor
As the Department of Homeland Security (the "focal point" of cybersecurity) receives yet another "F" on its annual information security report card, Congress and others are asking, "Is the Government ready for a digital Pearl Harbor?" ( e.g., House Gov't Reform Comm., Mar. 14, 2006). In "Pulling the Plug on the Power Grid: Cyberthreats and Homeland Security Challenges," published in the ABA's SciTech Lawyer (Spring 2006 http://www.crowell.com/pdf/newsroom/Bodenheimer_SciTech.pdf), C&M's David Z. Bodenheimer addresses the mounting concerns and challenges for Homeland Security in building defenses against cyber attacks on the nation's $1 trillion power grid, an essential component of America's critical infrastructure.
