Securing the U.S. Electrical Grid

With the support of the Smith Richardson Foundation, CSPC launched a yearlong project in July of 2013 to bring together representatives from the Executive Branch, Congress, and the private sector to discuss how to better secure the U.S. electric grid from the threats of cyberattack, physical attack, electromagnetic pulse, and inclement weather. Focused on the legislative and regulatory dynamics surrounding these issues, as well as the opportunities and challenges presented by new technologies, CSPC has held eight roundtables in Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Co-chaired by CSPC Trustees Mack McLarty and Tom Ridge, and led by CSPC Senior Fellow Frank Cilluffo, project recommendations were released in July 2014.
