Air Force, Gov’t, Industry Representatives Participate in North American Grid Security Exercise

1 min read

U.S. Air Force representatives gathered for the two-day national Grid Security Exercise IV event that simulated joint strategies in response to possible cyber and physical security threats to electricity grid and critical infrastructure in North America.

GridEx IV convened more than 6,500 participants from public and private sectors of the U.S., Canada and Mexico to demonstrate how teams would restore damaged grid infrastructure, the Air Force said Monday.

Defense Department, civilian federal agencies, state and local organizations, banking and telecommunications groups sought to determine communication challenges and worked to develop strategies that could address such problems.

“Participating in exercises like GridEx IV, allows us to test our preparedness plans and ensure the Air Force has resilient energy capabilities to assure our critical defense missions continue during a real-life crisis,” said Mark Correll, deputy assistant secretary for environment, safety and infrastructure at Air Force.
