CIA Director calls Smart Grid “Really, Really Stupid”

Thalia Assuras from sat down with former CIA Director James Woolsey to discuss the current state of the nation’s electric grid and its vulnerabilities. Woolsey says the federal government’s oversight of grid security is inadequate and attacks on the grid are “entirely possible”.

“No one in charge of security for the grid, whether it’s cyber or transformers or whatever. You can search forever through the federal code to try to find who that person might be.”

“And a so-called ‘Smart Grid’ that is as vulnerable as what we’ve got is not smart at all, it’s a really, really stupid grid.”

  1. Ha!I like that, someone finally doesn’t mind using the expression “STUPID” Money speaks, and always has .for this I really think that B.C.Hydro better take a step back and allow this meter to carry all signs of approval which is demanded for all appliances and the smart meter should not be the exception to the rule.. just because they are a corporation

    And wondering, is it the “Government” who governs Canada, or is it the “Corporations” May be that is the reason Mr. Harper calls it the “Harper Government”, he wants to hold on to that which is still good..
