Operational Communication, Collaboration and Coordination Key to Industry Success during an Event

WASHINGTON D.C. – Enhancing routine and emergency operations coordination between the electricity industry and natural gas providers is one of several recommendations identified during NERC and the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (E-ISAC) sixth security exercise, GridEx VI, held in November 2021. Communications, collaboration and coordination are among many policy recommendations highlighted in the GridEx VI Lessons Learned Report as being key to industry​s success during a severe security event. The report is a detailed post-exercise review and analysis that provides recommendations for actions by the electricity industry, cross-sector partners and government. ​Participants from across North America  including industry, and U.S. and Canadian government partners took part in the two-day exercise, which tested the operational and policy measures that would be needed to restore the grid following a severe cyber and physical attack.
