Description
 
Statement of Christopher P. Currie, Dir., Homeland Security and Justice, GAO. The threat posed by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) or solar weather event could have a debilitating impact on the nationäó»s critical electrical infrastructure, as well as other key assets that depend on electricity. These events could lead to power outages over broad geographic areas for extended durations. Addressing these risks requires collaboration among multiple government and industry stakeholders, with the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) in the lead for overall infrastructure protection efforts, working in coordination with the Dept. of Energy (DOE). This testimony addresses the extent to which DHS has: (1) taken action to address recommendations from the 2008 EMP Commission Report; and (2) coordinated with other principal federal agencies, such as DOE and industry stakeholders, to mitigate risks to the electric grid from electromagnetic threats. Table. This is a print on demand report.
