Airing on Friday, June 12, 2015: The huge transformers that make high-voltage transmission lines possible are expensive, custom-built, not made in America and vulnerable to terrorism, vandalism and nature. So a group of utilities is creating a strategic transformer reserve. Next: last week’s huge federal hack has cast light on an unspoken truth about cybersecurity: security companies — in fact all companies — have decided that cyber crime is now a fact of life. You can’t stop it, so all you can really do is mitigate. What does that mean for corporations trying to secure their data, and how does it play out in the security business? We explore.
