Task 1: With the increase in chatter and the increase in documented attacks, you now need to investigate the NORSE attack map in live time in order to analyze the potential for attacks on the grid. (this link should help you with task)

Analyze the attack pattern on the map over a period of a week. Write a report (2 – 4 pages) that includes:

      • Location of current threats and note the time you are viewing the map.
      • What countries are most involved? What country has the greatest number of attacks?
      • Are there any unusual targets or origins?
      • What type of attacks are occurring?
      • Come back daily over the course of a week to analyze the pattern.
      • Based on what information you have so far about the risk of attack on the Texas power grid, what countries or organizations appear to be an increased threat? Explain why you think this. Use information you have researched on countries and organizations to
      • support your answer.
