Project Grey Goose Report on Critical Infrastructure: Attacks, Actors, and Emerging Threats


This Project Grey Goose investigation was launched on October 16, 2009 to answer the question of whether there has been any successful hacker attacks against the power grid, both domestically and internationally.

Today, January 21, 2010, we are able to answer that question. Our Key Findings are p
articularly relevant now as Smart Grid research and development ramps up and implementation of Smart Grid technology occurs across the globe.

There are many reports in the public domain which discuss vulnerabilities in the
power grid. This is not one of them. Instead, this report looks at the broader threat landscape, some (not all) of the key actors involved, and most importantly, how U.S. Energy companies as a self-regulating and predominantly privately owned industry contribute to making the U.S power grid less secure.
