That operational disruption makes the attack the first of its kind in the country. “This disrupted the organization’s ability to monitor the current status of its power-generation systems. The utility industry refers to this type of incident as ‘loss of view,'” explained Phil Neray, vice president of industrial cybersecurity at CyberX, in an interview with Threatpost.''
