The Internet and Emergency Preparedness: A joint survey with Federal Computer Week magazine: this nine page (pdf) data memo documents 13 survey questions, and the answers provided by 1001 adult Americans (coincidentally conducted before the power outages that hit the eastern US, Toronto and Ottowa two weeks ago).

  • From the summary: “Half of Americans fear that terrorists might cripple American utilities such as electric, transportation and water systems, or its banks and major corporations through cyber-attacks.”
