Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Cyber-attack on U.S. grid, first of its kind.
The first of its kind, a cyber-attack on the US grid is being reported to have happened a couple of months back. It wasn’t major, as it didn’t cause any blackouts, but it did produce some signal outages on some “low impact” control center for a couple of minutes. It’s being said that this attack was caused due to an known security flaw in older firewalls, which has been patched.
