However, last year's Stuxnet worm changed everything, showing that these types of machines can be attacked, and even brought down with a cyberattack. That's put the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-funded Idaho National Laboratory security programs in the spotlight, because they form the backbone of the US government's plan to secure industrial systems. Journalist Robert McMillan toured the security facility where people are preparing for the next Stuxnet."
