Ars Technica have posted an article about cyber terrorism and how it could be a serious threat, especially to resources like water and oil. Turner's testimony covers the threat of Internet-based terrorism to the nation's critical infrastructure (petrochemical, energy, transportation, and water), an area that he's intimately acquainted with through his job at the Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory (INL). Judging by the long string of failing grades that our national infrastructure has gotten on its annual cybersecurity evaluations, you'd expect Turner's testimony to be fairly bleak, and indeed it is.
