E-ISAC UpdateMarch 13, 2020

In coordination with NERC, the E-ISAC, continues to track the evolving situation with regard to COVID-19. The E-ISAC is monitoring cyber and physical security issues related to coronavirus and encourage industry to continue sharing information related to grid security issues.

At this point, the E-ISAC is limiting all non-essential travel for staff, encouraging full-time telework, and is restricting visitors to our offices. Through these unprecedented times, the E-ISAC continues to serve the electricity industry to support information sharing, and reduce cyber and physical risk to the North American power grid.

On March 12, NERC posted an announcement on steps it is taking to prevent the impact of the coronavirus. This includes links to the Level 2 NERC Alert issued on March 10 and ESCC Guidance “Assessing and Mitigating the Novel Coronavirus [COVID-19].”

We are committed to the safety and security of our industry members and government and cross-sector partners and will continue to work with you to share information, best practices, and lessons learned.
