#FREE BOOK ⚥ Lights Out ì Ted Koppel – Britakristina.se

Advanced reading copy review Due to be published October 27, 2015Ted Koppel is known to most Americans as the anchor of Nightline ABC News for 25 years In Lights Out he uses his journalism skills to alert us to perhaps the greatest current threat to America s security, cyber terrorism While the emphasis is on hackers bringing down our power grid, he also warns about attacks on our water systems, nuclear power plants and other potentially disastrous weak points in our infrastructure that are controlled by computers It is a very frightening prospect Many communities can survive for a few days or weeks without power, but the worst case scenario is not getting back online for months or years Would America, or any other country, be able to survive without massive loss of life or societal breakdown The answer is yes but only with proper planning and foresight.Mr Koppel shows us individuals and entire communities that are preparing for the worst, but it won t be enough if millions are suddenly without the basics of survival He tells us how every individual should take some responsibility for having a disaster plan All of this is presented logically and without hysterics It all makes a lot of sense and had me thinking about how I could prepare for long term survival in my small NY apartment Make no mistake, this is not an optimistic book but it is necessary to help provoke us into action. Ted Koppel s expose on what will happen when we have a massive failure of the power grid We all know that this could happen and it would be a disaster, I really didn t need Ted Koppel to tell me that I think what irks me the most is that power companies are hesitant to do any disaster planning because it affects their bottom line If the government by which I mean we the people force companies to have some sort of disaster recovery, it s called regulation and we have every politician vowing to have it repealed because it is a job killer.There was something missing from this book I never watched Nightline so I have not sense of what to expect from Mr Koppel This review was originally posted on The Pfaeffle Journal #FREE BOOK Í Lights Out ⚟ In This Tour De Force Of Investigative

Gain Series One Of Our Most Renowned Journalists Examines A Threat Unique To Our Time And Evaluates Potential Ways To Prepare For A Catastrophe That Is All But Inevitable This reminded me of the adage about public speaking tell them what you re going to say say it tell them what you just said and then recap Koppel had one thing to say, the power grid in the US is highly vulnerable to attack And he said it and said it again and then said it again for about 175 pages He obviously interviewed a lot of people, all of whom confirmed his fears about our vulnerability, but they all said the same thing The last part of the book focused on the Mormons and on their disaster prepardness where they, each, have supplies stored for a full year This doesn t really have anything to do with fears of terrorism, just their own concerns about needing to be prepared for any eventuality And true to the style of the book, this went on and on and on for the final 60 or 70 pages, rehashing the same thing over and over again.It was somewhat enlightening, but mostly disappointing due to the repetitive nature of the writing. After reading this book, I gave it to a friend, and I wish I had copies to give away because I shouldn t have to be the only person worried I think that is the main purpose of this book to make a critical mass of people concerned about a possibly devastating cyberattack on our electric grid It would seem wise to be extremely proactive about this My takeaway is that we as a nation are pathetically unprepared in areas of both prevention and recovery Sure Mormons, people in rural areas and people with guns may fare slightly better than the rest of us, at least over the short term However, it would be pretty naive to conclude that you could stockpile or shoot your way out of the results of a cyberattack that shuts down a significant portion of our electric grid Koppel does not make this conclusion The book covers what constitutes a cyberattack, attacks that we have already experienced and vulnerabilities in our electric grid It also touches on who might have the capability and motivation to stage a cyberattack Although this is a short book, some of the discussion seemed repetitive, and I thought too much time was devoted to the preparedness of the Mormons.By end of the book, I was mostly resigned that if there is a cyberattack I will probably die because the government will not save me, and I am really ill equipped to fight other people for food, so my cats and I will just starve to death I think this is a well researched and important book and I hope it does some good, but I m not optimistic I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. Growing up in Oklahoma I experienced my fair share of power outages Tornadoes, dust devils, heat lightening, hail the size of grapefruits, ice storms and whiteouts You name it, sans hurricanes, if it s wild and crazy weather, it happens in Oklahoma And when the lights go out, along with every other electronic device, life becomes a whole different ballgame A bit scary Absolutely Eerily quiet Unnervingly so Annoying and inconvenient Darn right If power remains out for than a couple days, it can also become quite expensive spoiled food, forced to shelter out of town or state, loss of income, jacked up prices prompted by supply shortages and unethical gouging Moreover, it can be life threatening for the disabled, elderly, infants, and those under medical care relying on treatments such as oxygen or dialysis Of course, let s not be overly dramatic Most folks, urban and especially rural, could fairly easily survive a week to ten days without electricity Our government may have its pitfalls what government doesn t , but we are a nation that takes care of its own We are equipped to render aid during times of disaster federal, state level, and or privately through non profits and religious organizations All that is fine and good, for a single catastrophic event, geographically contained and of moderate disruptive aftermath and or duration But what if a cyberattack took out the entire eastern seaboard s power Or the west coast or half of our entire nation Considering the breadth and depth of such a disaster, among other related snowballs roll down hill issues, it could be months, yes, several MONTHS, before electricity could be restored It s one thing to watch apocalyptic movies on the big screen It s entertainment for the price of a ticket But it ceases to be entertaining, affordable, or innocuous if it happens for real Can you imagine the hysteria that would erupt Not to mention anarchy, loss of life, unsanitary conditions, looting, traffic woes, skyrocketing prices, lack of basic supplies, starvation Ted Koppel, one of the most revered journalists in the world who I have the utmost respect for, presents quite a case for the need to evaluate and prepare for possible highly likely cyperattack s targeting electrical power grids and related infrastructures The realities of such an attack, and the aftermath, is staggering I had no idea so many elements were at play during the generating and transferring of electricity Truly mind blowing And I was amazed at the depth and time Koppel put into researching the various angles of this topic which obviously weighs heavy on his mind And rightly so Lights Out A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath is an eye opening book that every American needs to read It s one thing to prepare for a hurricane, or earthquake, or twister, or fire Those incidents, though tragic, are reasonably manageable within our systems and agencies and preparedness plans currently in play But an illusive cyperattack from a rogue nation or militant group, questionably traceable at best, that could knock out power for seven months or We, that s the royal collective we, from the president on down to the lowest peon of peons in the general populous, needs to shake off complacency and be MUCH BETTER PREPARED Full Disclosure This review is based on a galley copy I received from Crown Publishing free of charge via Goodreads First Reads Much appreciated, to all involved in the giveaway process I finished reading this book a few weeks ago It caused me to intensify my doomsday prepping No, I am NOT kidding For this and other reasons, I have been so busy that I cannot squeeze the time to write a review I, therefore, urge everyone to read Will Byrnes brilliant review of this book Here is the link After finishing reading the above book, I read Electric Armageddon , by Dr Peter Vincent Pry Dr Pry s book deals with the same nightmare, that is, the failing of the grid Yet, other than Lights Out , which reports about the catastrophe resulting from a software destruction, Electric Armageddon reports about the catastrophe resulting from a hardware destruction, caused by an EMP Both books come to the same conclusion A failing of the grid regardless wether caused by a massive cyberattack or a massive EMP will be The End Of The World As We Know It and is likely to result in the death of 90% of the present American population People will die the old fashioned way, that is, by starvation, disease, and societal collapse I do not expect that doomsday prepping will let us survive, but I hope that it will let us die a bit comfortably, that is, with water, some basic supplies, and, not to forget, with toilet paper.Of all the dangers that we all are presently facing, I thought that a massive cyberattack or EMP were the most likely catastrophe to happen This was until a few days ago Following the recent political developments, I now consider a military interaction with North Korea which might lead to a WWIII even likely to happen I suppose you all are familiar with the topic of the movie Wag the Dog. It was good to hear Ted Koppel s voice again, but oh God, please don t let something like this happen No electricity No internet No Goodreads Seriously, according to the book it is estimated that only 1 in 10 Americans would survive a year without electricity Imagine all the equipment the infirmed require, imagine all the refrigeration required for food and drugs, imagine not being able to pump gas, imagine no generators for lack of fuel, no heat, no air conditioning, no flushing toilets, disease becomes rampant Gangs would rule, as starving people fight each other in a life and death battle for limited resources Civilization as we know it would likely breakdown completely.William R Forstchen wrote a fiction account of just this scenario in his book One Second After The story details the impact of an electro magnetic pulse EMP that takes down the electric system as opposed to hackers in Ted Koppel s account In either case, communication is completely disrupted so that the people cannot obtain information as to what is happening or what should be done Forstchen s account was so realistic that it was one of those books that disturb you to the point that you cannot help but stress over how you would protect your family if this would ever happen I will admit it did keep me awake at night and Koppel s hypothetical account only exacerbates that fear.So, what is the government doing view spoiler There are no plans for a speculative attack and through many interviews with government officials, it is clear there is no organized plan They say that there are no coordinated efforts because it is unlikely to happen The government references Hurricane Sandy where large areas were impacted, yet the situation did not descend into chaos, so relax America However, it should be noted that storms do not deliberately target the electric grid s critical weaknesses, cyber attacks do hide spoiler Darkness Extended periods of darkness, longer and profound than anyone not living in one of America s great cities has ever known As power shuts down there is darkness and the sudden loss of electrical conveniences As batteries lose power, there is gradual failure of cell phones, portable radios, and flashlights Emergency generators provide pockets of light and power, but there is little running water anywhere Emergency supplies of bottled water are too scarce to use for anything but drinking, and there is nowhere to replenish the supply Disposal of human waste becomes an issue within days this goes on quite a bitForget the zombie apocalypse Ted Koppel, a very level headed newsman, has brought to light a glaring soft spot in our national defense that could very well be exploited by enemies of the USA And we are not talking about something like the regional blackouts that have already occurred here This will not be your father s blackout, but the sort of scenario long imagined by writers and film makers with an Armageddon fixation How would America defend itself against an invasion if major portions of the country had been crippled Would an enemy even need to invade Or would it be enough for a dark force to enjoy the sight of the United States of America devolving into tribal packs vying for limited resources in a Mad Max milieu Ted Koppel from The NY Daily NewsIn Lights Out, Koppel covers a considerable range, looking at the specifics of where the vulnerabilities lie, physically, economically and politically He talks with military experts in the US Cyber Command, private cyber security experts, emergency planning experts, power company experts, hackers, insurers, and others Government cyber security, for example, is charged with defending military assets, not private ones What would it mean, constitutionally, were the DoD to be involved in providing domestic security for private companies There is scant consolation to be found in the fact that a major attack on the grid hasn t happened yet Modified attacks on government, banking, commercial, and infrastructure targets are already occurring daily, and while sufficient motive to take out an electric power grid may be lacking for the moment, capability is not And he does not limit his attention to internet based attacks, offering consideration of other means by which a determined enemy could knock out significant portions of the grid with tech like EMPs, or even well targeted, garden variety munitions deployed by a small number of special forces type teams There is evidence that this has already been practiced, by parties unknown As with most things, there is little public or industry support for the sort of large scale work that would need to be done to bolster power grid security, the increase in regulation, and the corresponding erosion of civil liberties that would be entailed This will continue until an actual attack takes place Of course by then it would be too late A 2008 report predicts that only one in ten Americans would survive a year into a national blackout Lights Out gives us some idea of just how uncentralized our electrical system is Despite our sense that there are only a few large power companies in the country, there are in fact thousands Add to that companies that distribute power without generating any It will come as no surprise that one of the major problems is that companies will not, and in many instances cannot, invest in needed security tech, because of the impact on efficiency and profitability Larger companies could Smaller ones, often, could not spend the money needed and remain viable Does this mean that the taxpayer should pick up the tab Maybe smaller companies should be encouraged to merge with larger power companies in the interest of national security That there are vulnerabilities in our infrastructure should come as no surprise to anyone I doubt that the USA is unique in this, but we tend to ignore problems until they are in our faces And even then will often seek out short term amelioration rather than long term solutions Cheaper is always better and when things go south, there is always someone else to blame But one bit of Koppel s research offered a very large surprise There is one community in the country that seems up to the challenge, well, not entirely, but to a greater degree than any other group, in government or out And that is The Church of Latter Day Saints, Mormons to you and me Koppel spends three chapters looking into their planning for whatever may come And it is jaw droppingly impressive If the big one comes sometime soon, whatever the big one may be, Mitt Romney may get to be president of whatever remains of the United States For every fact that Koppel turns up, and there are many, one or questions are raised, and implications and complications spread out from all of those There is a vast array of uncertainty in considering how we might keep the lights on when they are attacked, or at the very least how to quickly recover from such an attack Q How likely is an attack on our power grid Ted Koppel Very When I posed that question to former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, she put the likelihood at 80 or 90 percent General Lloyd Austin, who currently heads up the U.S military s Central Command, told me that it s not a question of if, but of when Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has warned of a cyber Pearl Harbor, and President Obama highlighted the threat to our power grid in his 2013 State of the Union address In short, government and military leaders think it s likely, and I found no compelling evidence to the contrary From A Conversation with Ted Koppel on his site for the bookSolution wise, it seems to me that, in addition to developing and installing hardware and software on our power grid control and distribution systems that it designed to thwart hostile actions, there is a clear national security advantage to encouraging the development of decentralized power sources The national interstate highway system that was proposed in 1944 was inspired by the autobahns of Germany When General Eisenhower became President Eisenhower, he saw to it that the proposal got funded One rationale was a need to evacuate cities quickly, should a nuclear attack be expected Of course, today that notion seems quaint, given how congested our urban roads are in the absence of panic mode But the roads got built because the nation decided it needed to be done for the common defense A similar argument might be made to secure the defense of our electric systems Unlike any other kind of threat this country has ever faced, it can be very difficult tracking the source, the origin of a cyber attack Given all of that you might assume that the government has formulated special plans to deal with the aftermath of such an attack There are plans for hurricanes, and blizzards, and earthquakes, but this would be very different The power outages caused by a targeted cyber attack would last longer and cover a much wider area than any of those natural disasters So, is there a plan No from Koppel s video intro to the book, on his siteIf the powers that be ever get around to putting a plan together, it could include a range of options, including supporting research to develop efficient batteries, supporting research and development in promising renewable energy sources, with a focus on technology that can be implemented broadly, instead of relying primarily on major power plants It would also be a useful thing for there to be an ability to manufacture transformer station hardware in the USA, something the country currently lacks Enemies might be able to foul national or regional power distribution and communications, but it might be tougher to switch off every rooftop solar array, or neighborhood windmill Government support for cyber defense offense too, as Iran well knows has already begun with the establishment of the United States Cyber Command in 2009 It seems clear that non government players will need to be engaged as well to make certain that the USA, which is totally reliant on our electrical and internet infrastructure, keeps a step ahead of those who would do us harm as Mike McConnell then director of national intelligence said For the record, if we were attacked, we would lose Koppel has done the nation a service by bringing this pressing security peril to light It remains to be seen, of course, whether there is sufficient political will to actually do something about it How ironic would it be if out power grid were left endangered by political gridlock You wanna hit that switch on your way out Review posted 10 7 2016Publication dates 10 27 2015 Hardcover 10 16 2016 Trade Paper EXTRA STUFFKoppel s vid intro to the bookThe site for

targeted by hackers Credit David Eulitt Capital Journal, via Associated Press Image was taken from the NY Times article In my online book collection I have a shelf assigned to dystopian novels such as The Stand, The Walking Dead, and The Day of the Triffids Once, in a somewhat whimsical mood, I renamed it my we re all gonna die shelf Lights out, Ted Koppel s Investigation into the threat that a cyberattack directed against our electrical grid, gets the dubious honor of being the first non fiction book to be placed on that shelf.Veteran newsman Koppel, with a consummate skill born of 42 years spent with ABC, lays the groundwork for a story that is every bit as terrifying as anything Stephen King could imagine What makes Lights Out A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath all the scarier is that it is not imagination A week doesn t go by where we don t hear about hackers successfully compromising the computer systems of a company or government agency The second page of the book describes the recent hacking of millions of federal employees private information On the very day I started it my wife, a national laboratory employee, received two rejection letters for credit cards she never applied for As unpleasant as this kind of cyberattack is for us, it is just the tip of the iceberg of what Ted Koppel s book is about.The first half of the book describes in frightening detail the weaknesses that exist in America s three major power grids It tells how likely it is that a concerted attack may black out large parts of the country for months or even years, and how ill prepared the electrical power industry and the government is to prevent it or deal with the aftermath If it does happen and many experts say the word to use is when the prediction is that fewer than ten percent of the population would survive a power outage of one year s duration Solutions have been proposed and legislation has been introduced to address this but, and this should surprise no one, that legislation has never made it out of committee.The second half of the book is called Surviving the Aftermath and addresses how people are preparing for this and other catastrophic events These options range from renting condos in a repurposed Kansas missile silo to hiring an ex special forces soldier to hustle your family to a waiting speedboat stored at a secret mooring on the East River for escape to a yacht waiting offshore About the only thing these plans have in common is that they cost a lot than the average suburbanite has to spend on post apocalypse preparation, or anything for that matter It also devotes three chapters to plans the Church of Latter day Saints and their comprehensive preparations for disaster While this provides ideas of what society can do if we work together it gives little in the way of hope for individuals wanting to make preparations themselves The bottom line is that we, in pursuit of convenience, economic advantage, and the right to privacy, have created an open door to allow anyone with the know how and the will to destroy the United States without firing a shot The ability for hackers to cripple one or of our three major power grids for an extended period of time already exists The review book was based on an advanced reading copy obtained at no cost from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review While this does take any not worth what I paid for it statements out of my review, it otherwise has no impact on the content of my review.FYI On a 5 point scale I assign stars based on my assessment of what the book needs in the way of improvements 5 Stars Nothing at all If it ain t broke, don t fix it 4 Stars It could stand for a few tweaks here and there but it s pretty good as it is 3 Stars A solid C grade Some serious rewriting would be needed in order for this book to be considered great or memorable 2 Stars This book needs a lot of work A good start would be to change the plot, the character development, the writing style and the ending 1 Star The only thing that would improve this book is a good bonfire.
