United States Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz worries more about cars being hacked than the electric grid being attacked, he said this morning in Las Vegas.
At the National Clean Energy Summit, former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta—now Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman—asked Moniz if the prospect of cyber attacks on the electric grid keeps him awake at night.
“Yes,” Moniz replied, but he suggested the electric grid was not the most vulnerable system.
“The grid is usually the poster child for the discussion,” Moniz said, but DOE has been working with utilities to increase cyber security, training utility executives and helping them get security clearances they need to be fully informed of risks.
“We have a very effective working arrangement with utilities right now to increase cybersecurity.”
