A federal grant will pay for the consulting firm, C.H. Guernsey & Co., to evaluate cybersecurity risks at 6 of Kentucky's electricity distribution cooperatives.

The Public Service Commission says cyber attacks are one of the greatest threats to the power grid.

If the consultants find any vulnerabilities, they will help find solutions on how to better protect the computer system at that facility.

While these cooperatives serve smaller cities in Kentucky, experts say the electricity distribution network is so interconnected, that if one region has an issue, it can easily disrupt other regions.
