Marc Rogers, director of Purdue’s Cyberforensics Lab and CERIAS Fellow, says the drill will recreate everything from a partial shutdown of electricity across North America to a virtual blackout affecting all of the U-S, Canada, and Mexico. “They will look at how vulnerable (the grid is) or what the weaknesses are, how would these things be identified; could they be identified in time; once they were identified and once there were bad things happening to the grid, how would the grid recover, and how long it would take to recover,” said Rogers.
