Markey calls for Congressional Action to protect electric grid from cyberattack.

Congress must act to put in place strong, mandatory standards, including providing FERC the authority to issue grid security orders or rules when industry has not adequately addressed known vulnerabilities or threats. Only then will we have girded the electric grid from the cyberattacks that could devastate our banking, health care and defense systems.”
