Learning from a Power Grid Attack

This week's assignment we are going to investigate an extremely detrimental attack that took place and involved SCADA and ICS systems. The incident we are going to research is the attacks against the Ukrainian Power Grid.

Assignment Guidelines

Step 1: Obviously our first step is to start researching the various attacks against the Ukrainian Power Grid. What information is out there, can we assign the source of the attacks with certainty?

Step 2: Once you have completed your research you will want to breakdown the underlying attacks, lessons that can be learned from those attacks, and how likely it is that the source of the attacks could succeed in doing the same thing to the United States.

Step 3: Once you have gathered up all the information you will compile the data into Word document of approximately 5-7 pages of content, excluding the cover page, references, etc. Make sure you address the incidents and the likelihood of the threat towards the United States.
