Oversight comes at a cost


A reality in our world is that as technology expands, so do the costs to keep things secure.

For example, it was reported this week that Iranian computer hackers accessed the control system of small dam

outside of New York City two years ago. It alarmed the government that foreign threats could get into such a

system. They didn’t take control of it, but they probed it, officials said.

The Department of Homeland Security told Fox News that it continues to work with securing critical

infrastructure across the United States, to raise awareness about evolving threats, and to promote measures to

reduce risks to systems. According to a report, the Department of Homeland Security was notified of 295

industrial-control-system hacking incidents over the 12 months ending Sept. 30. Over the previous 12 months,

the number was 245.
