EEI supports the Rogers legislation as passed by the House, but it has not taken a position on what should come out of the Senate on cybersecurity legislation, said Scott Aaronson, director of government relations at EEI.

Information sharing "is not the 'be all end all' of cybersecurity, but it's a good first step," Aaronson said following the panel of speakers at the EEI meeting.

A complete breakdown in the U.S. power sector isn't a likely scenario though, according to Scott Aaronson, Security Director for EEI, a trade association for the electricity industry. "We're the only sector with mandatory cybersecurity standards," he said, referring to the Critical Infrastructure Protection standards mandated by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation.

And the kind of social breakdown depicted in the film could occur if any one of a number of U.S. critical infrastructure sectors were crippled. "Deprive of us of food, deprive us of water, deprive us of telecom and you're going to have the same impact," Aaronson said.

The panel of witnesses included: ... [cached]

The panel of witnesses included: Scott Aaronson, Executive Director for Security and Business Continuity at the Edison Electric Institute testifying on behalf of the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council; Chris Beck, Chief Scientist and Vice President for Policy at the Electric Infrastructure Security Council (EIS Council); Gerry Cauley, President and CEO of the North American Reliability Corporation; and Barbara Sugg, Vice President for IT and Chief Security Officer of Southwest Power Pool testifying on behalf of ISO/RTO Council.

Mr. Aaronson of the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council testified about the seriousness of reliable and secure electricity and the need to manage risk. To maintain security, priorities are set to protect the most critical energy grid components against the most likely threats. He noted that, if risks are framed as a function of likelihood and consequence, then they can allocate resources more effectively to meet those threats. They also use a defense-in-depth strategy that attempts to avoid a single point of failure in the system. He cited four main areas that improve electricity security, which include: deploying government technologies that improve situational awareness and enable machine-to-machine information sharing, making sure actionable intelligence and threat indicators are communicated to the right people at the right time in the right way, planning and exercising to coordinate responses to an incident, and working closely with other interdependent infrastructure sectors to ensure all are prepared for and can respond to national-level incidents.
