NERC’s Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) and the Water Information Sharing and Analysis Center (WaterISAC) launched a new security partnership aimed at enhancing cross-sector coordination and taking advantage of the interdependencies of the electricity and water industries.

Staff from WaterISAC will join the E-ISAC in Washington, D.C., to improve coordination on potential security risks related to the supply of electricity to water and wastewater treatment plants, and the supply of water to electric utilities for cooling power plant turbines and for office operations. Through a variety of tools, both the E-ISAC and WaterISAC monitor and analyze potential physical and cyber security threats to their respective industries and use their respective secure portals to alert and advise members on mitigating real threats.

The E-ISAC and WaterISAC have agreed to use existing policies and procedures for safeguarding sensitive information under the partnership.
