To Catch a Hacker

When cyber-hackers overtook parts of Ukraine’s electricity grid last December, plunging more than 200,000 people into darkness, the unprecedented attack sent utility companies everywhere scrambling to address long-standing vulnerabilities in their own power systems. While utilities carefully monitor technological conditions in the big transmission lines that connect power plants to substations, the surveillance of their distribution grids that light up homes is much shakier.
