Inside the Pentagon’s Plan to Defend the Power Grid

“The Pentagon’s advanced research wing is looking for ways to safeguard America’s most critical assets from attacks on the Internet – a network it helped create,” the Christian Science Monitor reports.  

“The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which pioneered much of the technology underpinning the Internet, is planning to invest $77 million over the next four years to develop methods to help utilities detect and recover from cyberattacks, which experts say is a growing threat to small and large power operators alike. “
