Event description


Join InfraGardNCR for a members-only briefing - "GridEx III Lessons Learned"

GridEx III was a very large cyber and physical security exercise, focused on the electricity subsector in North America, involving over 4,400 participants from 364 organizations in the US, Canada and Mexico. Conducted over two days in November 2015, the exercise provided opportunities to go through crisis response and recovery procedures, improve internal and external communication paths, and gather lessons learned. Join Bill Lawrence (Director, Programs and Engagement, Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center) and Martin Kessler (InfraGardNCR Energy Sector Chief) for a webinar to discuss the public/private participation across the continent, the postulated scenario impacts, and the lessons learned from the simulated cyber and physical attacks.

We hope you can join us!

This program is for InfraGard members only.

Webinar link and call-in information will be provided once your InfraGard membership is confirmed.
