GridEx V Report Recommends Emergency Response Plan Reviews, Enhanced Cross-Sector Coordination

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Utilities and Reliability Coordinators should review their emergency response plans to account for the complex collaboration with all levels of government in North America that would be required should a grid security event occur, NERC recommended in its GridEx V after-action report. This report focuses on lessons learned and recommendations highlighted throughout the two-day exercise. NERC held the grid security exercise, which had 7,000 participants from across North America — including industry and U.S. and Canadian government partners — in November 2019.

The GridEx V Lessons Learned Report focuses on participant observations and recommendations from the cyber and physical security exercise’s distributed play and complementary executive tabletop. The recommendations target actions for the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC), electricity industry and cross-sector and government partners in North America to improve future GridEx events and enhance the security posture. ​
