Cheryl LaFleur, acting chairwoman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said Thursday that her agency is taking steps to improve handling of classified national security information, following a report that officials improperly allowed widespread access to a document that outlined specific physical threats to the nation's electric grid. LaFleur told the Senate Energy Committee that employees are "wiping and scrubbing all databases" and taking other steps to protect sensitive information. The commission also has directed a nonprofit entity that oversees electric reliability to develop physical security standards for the grid by early June. less
