E-ISAC Vendor Affiliate Program Marks One Year of Strengthening Our Grid’s Defense

WASHINGTON, D.C. – One year ago, the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) launched its Vendor Affiliate Program to address the ongoing cyber attacks and supply chain compromises on the North American grid. Since its inception, the program has welcomed a dozen partners committed to improving the security posture of our nation’s most critical infrastructure.

“This E-ISAC initiative has facilitated vendor collaboration with electricity industry stakeholders in a trusted environment,” said Manny Cancel, NERC senior vice president and chief executive officer of the E-ISAC. “As the threat landscape continues to evolve, the E-ISAC recognizes the importance of collaboration between the electricity industry and its vendors to strengthen our collective defense.”​ 

The Vendor Affiliate Program is focused on increasing information sharing and providing opportunities for collaboration between the electricity industry and the vendor community. Participating vendors participate in the E-ISAC by sharing information on critical vulnerabilities and supply chain impacts as well as contributing thought leadership on security-related threats, technology and solutions.
