This week, the North American Electric Reliability Corp. released its unclassified summary of its latest GridEx exercise, which tested how utility participants would handle a blackout following a cyber and physical attack on the U.S. grid. How vulnerable is the grid to an attack like the one simulated at GridEx, and how should state regulators take the lessons learned from the exercise to formulate a plan of action? On today's The Cutting Edge, EnergyWire reporter Peter Behr discusses the unclassified summary's details and next steps.
