Reliable power is a service we often take for granted, as we rarely stop to think about what enables our American way of life. Under “business as usual” circumstances, these services are expected to run smoothly. But, what happens during emergencies? How do we ensure utilities and other services continue to operate uninterrupted? How does the federal government work with public and private sector partners to enable the continuity of operations even in times of crisis?
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), as the nation’s risk advisor, is at the forefront of building public-private sector partnerships and addressing these questions through a holistic approach. CISA works with businesses, communities, and government at every level to help make the nation’s critical infrastructure more resilient to cyber and physical threats. Since 2018, NERC’s Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) has been embedded with CISA operations, benefitting both organizations and producing a sharper focus on specific threats that target, or could target, the energy sector.
