Given that there are real risks out there which could bring down the power grid – what will you do to obtain one of the most important life-sustaining supplies – your water?
Recently, Admiral Michael Rogers of U.S. Cyber Command, said the United States has detected malware on U.S. computers that enables the shut down of very segmented, very tailored parts of our infrastructure. A recent report by a cyber-security firm found that hackers were able to penetrate American public utility systems that service everything from power generation, to the movement of water and fuel across the country.
“It is only a matter of the when, not the if, that we are going to see something traumatic.” Rogers said.
While cyber threats are a real and present danger to our infrastructure, other catastrophic events could also take down the power grid such as an EMP attack or X30+ solar flare.
The question is, IF such a terrible event were to take place, one of your highest priorities will be obtaining water. You may not realize it now, but your need for water in a world devoid of electricity will quite rapidly become you highest priority for survival.
