White House Taskforce on Pipeline Cyber Attack

The investigation into a major cyber-attack on the largest U.S. pipeline continued this week as the White House created an inter-agency task force to tackle the problem. The task force worked through the weekend to address the breach, including exploring options for lessening its impact on the energy supply.  Colonial Pipeline halted all operations on its systems when it was hit with ransomware late Friday and is working to restore operation as investigators assess the damage.
