Regional Vice President of Xcel Energy, Laura McCarten told KELO news that they will be directly involved "so that we can respond quickly in the case of a cyber or physical attack on the grid simuliar to dealing with an ice storm as we did earlier this year... as it's all part of being prepared so that we can serve our customers and keep service reliable".
