On November 8, 2017, INSA’s Cyber Council and Domestic Security Council jointly hosted a tabletop exercise to examine cyber threats to critical infrastructure. More than 70 participants came from federal and state agencies, cybersecurity companies, energy and transportation operators, and crisis communications firms.
Divided into five teams, participants worked through a scenario simulating a cyberattack on the Baltimore power grid that had cascading effects on the regional transportation infrastructure. The exercise’s three moves – in which stakeholders detected, responded to, and recovered from the cyberattack – were structured around phases in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
