Meanwhile, lights go out briefly at the White House and at the State Department when something as simple as a transformer is blown a few streets away.
Matter of fact, one should question why the White House is even connected to the same civilian grid. What’s more, one should question whether or not this is a coverup for something more serious such as a cyber attack on Washington from Russia or China. The White House or State Departments should never have lights go dim due to ‘transformer blowouts’.
America is going into war unprepared.
According to the head of Control Systems concern, the most important and secret information is transmitted through alternative communications channels which guarantees its resistance to cyber attacks
MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. The recently created in Russia National Defense Control Center (NDCC) is almost 100% protected from cyber attacks, Director of the Control Systems concern, member of the board of the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC — a Rostec subsidiary) Andrey Riznyk told TASS in an interview on Tuesday.
“Everything possible and even more has been done for the Center’s information security. All its systems are protected, the general level of the complex’s security is very powerful, I would say nearly 100%,” said Riznyk.
He said that the Center is a big complex with numerous channels of incoming and outgoing information. “Hundreds if not thousands information flows in various directions are going through it. Anyway, there are no absolutely protected systems of this kind in the world, not only in our country,” he said.
According to previous reports, the National Defence Control Center was put on combat duty in Russia on December 1, in line with a decree signed by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu. The new Center comprises the Control Center of Strategic Nuclear Forces (which oversees issues of use of weapons of mass destruction), the Combat Control Center (which analyses threats) and the Daily Activities Control Center (which deals with procurement issues).
