Cross-Sector Council Overview

The mission of the Power & Utilities Cross-Sector Council (CSC) is to provide a forum for a collaborative effort between power and utility-focused security professionals, education and research, vendors in industry, academia, and government to protect the nation’s electrical grid, critical infrastructure, and key resources against threats and attack.

CSC Objectives

The Power & Utilities CSC strives to provide early detection and response to known risks, threats, and attacks, mitigating damage. It also endeavors to discuss threats and vulnerabilities with the Power & Utilities Sector during in-person meetings and via the CSC Network secure portal, as well as share information on both cyber and physical security issues and collaborate on solutions. Its role will be to act as a liaison between members and the government for cyber threats and response, driving improvements and standards for cyber and physical security issues, and ultimately, raising the bar in remediating industry risks.
