Extremists Threatening Power Utilities and Critical Infrastructure

A recent security bulletin has provided situational awareness of a threat to critical infrastructure from White Supremacist Extremists (WSEs) and Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVEs).  Although there is no specific or actionable intelligence at this time indicating an immediate threat to critical infrastructure from attacks by these groups, it is important to acknowledge that power utilities represent an attractive target to extremist groups.  With violent attacks from WSEs and domestic terrorism on the rise, it is becoming increasingly important to be aware of potential targets and implement protective measures to counter these types of attacks.
