NERC conducted its second sector-wide grid security exercise, GridEx II, in November 2013.

The first grid security exercise took place in November 2011.

These geographically distributed exercises were designed to execute the electricity sector’s crisis response to simulated coordinated cybersecurity and physical security threats and incidents, to strengthen utilities’ crisis response functions, and to provide input for lessons learned.

GridEx III is scheduled for November 18-19, 2015.
