'Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving The Aftermath' By Ted Koppel


  In his new book of investigative reporting, Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath, Ted Koppel reveals that a major cyber-attack on America’s power grid is not only possible but likely, that it would be devastating, and that the United States is shockingly unprepared.

It isn’t just a scenario. Koppel says a well-designed attack on just one of the nation’s three electric power grids could cripple much of our infrastructure—and in the age of cyber-warfare, a laptop has become the only necessary weapon.

Ted Koppel, a 42-year veteran of ABC News, was anchor and managing editor of Nightline from 1980 to 2005. He has won every significant television award, including 8 Peabody Awards and 42 Emmys.
