Cyber Attack Task Force Formed as Part of Coordinated Action Plan
WASHINGTON, DC – As part of its Coordinated Action Plan, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) announced that it has formed the Cyber Attack Task Force. The task force will consider the impacts of a coordinated cyber attack on the reliability of the bulk power system.
The task force will identify opportunities to enhance existing protection, resilience and recovery capabilities associated with power system operations practices, plans and procedures, as well as the tools and systems that operators rely upon to manage the reliable operation of the bulk power system. By developing flexible options, system operators will be better prepared to recognize an event and implement mitigation tactics the may include unique solutions not typical to daily operations.
