GridEx 2011: NERC CyberSecurity Exercise is Upon Us

Practice makes perfect ... or at least makes you better.

I mentioned this back in July HERE, now thanks to Dave Dalva of BAH, I can tell you a big exercise is coming up this week, starting tomorrow:
The grid security exercise, scheduled for November 15-17, will test NERC’s and the electricity industry’s crisis response plans, and validate current readiness in response to a cyber incident. The exercise also will serve as an opportunity to enhance collaboration and strengthen industry security processes and capabilities.
Follow this LINK to a bulletin on the exercise as well as a compilation of some of the best grid security presentations I've ever seen, from NERC's recent conference in New Orleans (see Presentations tab at bottom of page).

Results and findings should be available around mid December, and I'll be sure to post material that's cleared for public consumption.
