Cyber threats to the energy grid and transportation infrastructure

December 13, 2017

Mark Maier recently chaired a cross-functional team that conducted and responded to a cyber attack exercise on our energy grid and transportation systems. The event brought together commercial operators of the electricity and transportation systems, along with government officials from the local, state and federal levels.

The all-day session tested strengths, weaknesses, nd resiliency of these system, organizations and people in response to cascading effects from such an attack. The Intelligence & National Security Alliance, who sponsored the event, will publish the observations, lessons learned and recommendations. More information is available through the INSA’s website.

Mark chairs Shulman Rogers’ Government Contracts and Technology Transactions practices. For more information on Transportation Law, visit our Transportation Industry practice page.
