NERC Completes Second Grid Security Exercise (GridEx II)

On November 14, 2013, NERC completed GridEx II, its second two-day cyber and physical security exercise. More than 200 industry and government organizations participated in the exercise, which is designed to “enhance and improve cyber and physical security resources and practices within the industry.” Participants were given the opportunity to check the readiness of their crisis action plans through simulated security exercises, to assess response and recovery capabilities, and to adjust actions and plans as needed while communicating and sharing information with industry and government organizations. NERC expects to issue a report and recommendation in the first quarter of 2014.
