The National Electric Regulatory Commission (NERC) has just been notified by the U.S. Cyber Command that communications have been intercepted stating a plot to take down the national electric grid within an unspecified period. It is believed that the window is narrow, and perceptions are that actions will take place within the next 48-hour period. The threat has been deemed credible, and the President has been notified. Only “need-to-know” organizations have been notified, as the nation’s leadership does not want wide-spread panic to set-in. As a secure and trusted team, the National Infragard has been notified, as well as Chapter heads. It is an all-hands effort to stop these bad-actors before the grid goes down and life across America changes forever.
You are an important part of an elite task-force that must find, suppress, and kill the commands planted on eleven machines from points across the globe to make America Dark. Unfortunately, you do not have any idea out of the thousands of machines controlling the grid, which ones are key to taking it down. Your task is to stop this lead bad-actor and his global team from being successful within the next four hours. Good luck. The nation is depending on you!
