2219 - Bringing Cyber Mutual Assistance to Electric Utility Operators

Wednesday, September 27
8:00 AM - 8:50 AM

Today, the electric industry’s culture of mutual assistance is a model for creating responses to cyber threats to the energy grid. Based on lessons learned from major destructive cyber incidents overseas, and from exercises in North America, the Cyber Mutual Assistance Program was developed. It is a natural extension of the electric power industry’s longstanding approach of sharing critical personnel and equipment when responding to emergencies.

This presentation will describe what it is and how it addresses risks faced by critical infrastructure owners and operators.
