NERC GridEx V Training Registration Page

NERC will be conducting its fifth sector-wide grid security exercise, GridEx V, in November 2019. 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 V is scheduled for November 13-14, 2019.

For more information, please visit this event overview.


The objectives for GridEx V are:

• Exercise incident response plans
• Expand local and regional response
• Engage interdependent sectors
• Increase supply chain participation
• Improve communication
• Gather lessons learned
• Engage senior leadership


GridEx V 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.
