Power Grid Down Drill To Be Conducted By US Government

An electrical grid joint drill simulation is being planned in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Thousands of utility workers, FBI agents, anti-terrorism experts, governmental agencies, and more than 150 private businesses are involved in the November power grid drill.

The downed power grid simulation will reportedly focus on both physical and cyber attacks. The antiquated electrical system in the United States has been one of the most neglected pieces of integral infrastructure.

I found this:

Facilitating the first-ever distributed-play, GridEx 2011, for the Electricity Sub-sector in North America (GridEx II is scheduled for 2013)
• Participating in government partnership initiatives, including the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Level Exercise series and various cybersecurity forums and briefings with Canadian government agencies, as well as the White House–initiated, Department of Energy (DOE)-led Electricity Sub-sector Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model (ES-C2M2)
• Electricity Sub-sector Cybersecurity Risk Management Process (RMP) Guideline, developed with DOE, NIST, NERC, and the sub-sector, which supports ongoing development and measurement of cybersecurity capabilities and entity risk within the sub-sector.

It's only a solar flare away. However, there will be advanced notice - to save all your electronic devices simply unplug them.
The whole grid should be taken down if such an event occurs.

hug.gif Good find Octo. I'm wondering if this doesn't go ahead Oct 1st too. I've not been 'battling' with BC Hydro over smart metres, they've been reasonable and courteous over my refusal but I have joined a class action law suit to prevent their fining me for not having one. It isn't the EMR that bothers me, I get more from wi-fi. What bothers me is the job loss and how extremely hackable they are, particularily by government lol.gif

It's kinda funny how they're so concerned over the electric grid and hackability, yet keep developing an even more vulnerable system. bored.gif

Seems so doesn't it? They don't address the aged and vulnerable infrastructure, they pursue control and maximum profit.
