Protecting the electric power grid is a serious priority and shared responsibility between industry and government. Government has the resources to identify and mitigate threats, while industry owns most of our critical infrastructure and maintains the operational expertise.
Using effective risk management, electric power companies work closely with government and industry peers toward one goal: building a secure, more reliable and resilient energy grid.
To achieve this, we don’t have to start from scratch: DHS can work with industry to build stronger partnerships from already developed initiatives like the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council and Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center.
