Seasonal and Special Reliability Assessments

NERC also operates the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC). The E-ISAC offers security services to bulk power system owners and operators across North America. E-ISAC member services includes specific cyber and physical security threat intelligence, tailored cyber security knowledge and physical security collaboration. The E-ISAC, which NERC established at the request of the U.S. Department of Energy, works closely with NERC’s Bulk Power System Awareness team in Atlanta to monitor real-time cyber and physical security threats to the grid.

The E-ISAC, through capabilities including its Cybersecurity Risk Information Sharing Program (CRISP), works with critical asset owners and operators to analyze real-time cyber and physical security data for patterns of incidents with the potential to impact the bulk power system. NERC has a “firewall” separating the E-ISAC and NERC’s compliance and enforcement activities. The separation extends to a physical separation of the E-ISAC from the rest of NERC.
