Panel: Cyber just one part of securing critical infrastructure

When Hurricane Sandy blew through New York and New Jersey in the fall of 2012, power and transportation systems were crippled for days and weeks.
That, in part, fueled the government’s efforts to make these systems, known as critical infrastructure, more “resilient” — better able to absorb and recover from natural disasters, terrorist attacks, cyber intrusions and other adverse conditions.
The Federal Transit Administration recently announced it would award $3 billion in competitive grants to protect critical transportation platforms from future natural disasters.
