Clearing Up Misperceptions on Electromagnetic Pulse Implications
Interview with Dr. Clay Wilson
Program Director, Cybersecurity at American Public University
Films have a tendency to stretch the imagination beyond what is scientifically and physically possible. They are reliant on the suspension of disbelief to build upon the storyline and engross the viewer. One such exaggerated instance is electromagnetic pulse. For the average viewer the misperceptions around electromagnetic pulse implications do not directly impact them, but to those studying cybersecurity it’s extremely important to get educated on its real implications. Here to talk more about his research in the area, and on electromagnetic pulse implications, is Dr. Clay Wilson. In this podcast he goes into great detail about the expectations from the use of EMP.
