White House Advisory Group NIAC Warns of Massive Scale Cyber Attack

Published August 24, 2017

“We’re in a pre-9/11 moment,” warned Mike Wallace, a member of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC), at the White House on August 22.

Wallace is the co-chair of a NIAC working group that recently presented a report to senior Administration officials. Their findings warn that the U.S. is not ready to cope with large scale attacks aimed at the U.S. power grid, communications systems, and other critical infrastructure.

The report and its recommendations aim at action, according to Wallace. “We don’t want this report put on a shelf…We’re at a point where important progress needs to be made.”
