NERC GridEx IV 2017

NERC will be conducting its fourth sector-wide grid security exercise, GridEx IV, in November 2017. The first grid security exercise took place in November 2011, and has continued to occur every other year providing an opportunity for asset owners and operators across North America to test their incident response plans. 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 IV is scheduled for November 15-16, 2017.

For more information, please visit this event overview.


The objectives for GridEx IV are:

  • Exercise crisis response and recovery
  • Improve communications
  • Identify lessons learned
  • Engage senior leadership


GridEx IV is a training opportunity for industry stakeholders to take part in the exercise from their place of work over two days and receive sequenced exercise injects and interact with exercise tools that detail simulated scenario conditions. Based on this information, participants will respond with simulated internal and external information sharing activities, as well as practice and review internal response procedures. An exercise control cell, based in the Washington, D.C. area, will manage scenario distribution, monitor the exercise and gather lessons learned.
