Lockheed Martin Integrated Infrastructure


The Deck
National Theatre
South Bank

This was a launch event for the report “Integrated Infrastructure: Cyber Resiliency in Society”. This report was produced by the University of Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies in collaboration with Lockheed Martin. It details a cyber attack scenario on the UK distribution network that results in rolling blackouts in London and surrounding areas due to rogue hardware installed in the substations. In the most extreme scenario variant, the total impact to the British economy reaches as high as £442 billion, with disruptions extending beyond the water, communications and transportation sectors.
