According to the director of the National Security Agency and head of U.S. Cyber Command, China and “one or two” other countries are capable of cyber attacks that could shut down the U.S. power grid and other critical systems in the United States.

Michael Rogers confirmed what was widely speculated.

According to ABC News, Rogers said at a hearing of the House intelligence committee that U.S. adversaries are electronic “reconnaissance” regularly in an attempt to give themselves the upper hand to disrupt the industrial control systems throughout the country.

“All of that leads me to believe it is only a matter of when, not if, we are going to see something dramatic,” Rogers said.

Experts say that the U.S. Cyber Command could also hack into and damage critical infrastructure of its adversaries, which acts as a deterrent.

Rogers said that the nuclear deterrence model did not not necessarily apply to cyber attacks since they could be easily disguised and could be carried out by criminals and individuals not countries.

In cyberspace, “You can literally do almost anything you want, and there is not a price to pay for it,” the NSA director said.

Last year, BenSwann.com reported that some power companies conducted “drills” to prepare for outages.

Our source told Benswann.com, “SCADA systems are the ones that control all the power plant systems.  It stands for “Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition”.  SCADA systems vary from product to product and company to company.  A virus could potentially be made to gain control of that system.  These can and are remotely controlled via the web in many cases.  For instance, I can log in and control a wind turbine across the country with my laptop.”
