The U.S. electric grid is vulnerable to a cyber-attack that could take electricity offline if successful. Protecting against cyber threats requires staying ahead of technology, maintaining transparency and sharing information. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is one government organization that has awarded several contracts to develop emerging technologies. These innovations could then be used to prevent and respond to cyber-attacks. Since DARPA is responsible for some of the world’s most significant scientific and technological breakthroughs, it is crucial that President-elect Donald Trump funds the agency’s efforts. These public-private partnerships demonstrate why it is essential that the government and private sector work together to protect against such threats. I have written a commentary on this subject for The National Interest here.
