Review – Fmr. CIA Dir. Jim Woolsey warns of existential EMP threat to America

I have been studying First World worst case scenarios where Cyber and life intertwine, and was recommended to review this session.  It is a panel discussion that included former CIA Director on the threat of EMP on the U.S. national infrastructure.

Mr. Woolsey takes roughly the first 10 minutes to set the stage and it is worth listening to help anchor why the NERC/FERC CIP, Executive Order, and the betterment initiatives led by private industry are so important.

A bit of an extreme and not something many ‘concern themselves’ on, but it is important to start translating what information security and cyber mean in a tangible fashion. To often we deal only in probabilities and numbers and forget all else.
