The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, in collaboration with the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) and Idaho National Laboratory, will be hosting a hands- on workshop for electricity subsector owners and operators in the U.S. to enhance their preparedness against a cyber incident impacting industrial control systems.
The training will offer attendees a hands-on, simulated demonstration of a cyber-attack, drawing from elements of the December 2015 Ukraine cyber incident. The workshop will be conducted by utilizing a series of exercises/labs listed below that workshop attendees will have to work through in teams. Other topics that will be referenced include the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) alert related to the 2015 Ukraine cyber incident and the applicability of NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) reliability standards* for such an incident. However, the primary focus will not be standards, but rather understanding the Ukraine cyber incident from a technical perspective to enhance cyber preparedness.
