Power Grid Vulnerability

Back in January there was some news surrounding the issues surrounding network vulnerabilities of the nations power grid operators. Pretty scary stuff considering the implications. According to a Network World article today, the Tennesee Valley Authority (TVA) apparently still doesn't get it. A GOA (Government Accountability Office) report laid out 73 recommendations for TVA to improve its security. The report and recommendations seem to apply across the board to electric companies; the focus on the TVA is probably just because they are the largest, serving an area with 8.7 million people.

Check out the article here.
