While hurricane season itself isn’t unusual, the fact that so many of these storms are making landfall in places like Texas and Florida is.

Following a warning from the FBI last month that Russian hackers were attacking the US power grid, Energy Services Group (ESG) has been knocked offline for the second time in recent months. As of this writing, ESG’s systems remain offline to scores of brokers, suppliers, and utilities in Texas that rely on them every single day.  ESG has yet to release many details in regards to the continued outage, but it has stated that it will be down until “further notice.” ESG not only strongly supports and impacts Texas’ energy operations, but dozens of other states, provinces, and prefectures,...
