Electric Sector Failure Scenarios and Impact Analyses
National Electric Sector Cybersecurity Organization Resource (NESCOR)

The National Electric Sector Cybersecurity Organization Resource (NESCOR) Technical Working Group 1 (TWG1) has developed this document on the topic of cyber security failure scenarios and impact analyses for the electric sector. The information about potential cyber security failure scenarios is intended to be useful to utilities for risk assessment, planning, procurement, training, tabletop exercises and security testing. A cyber security failure scenario is a realistic event in which the failure to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability of sector cyber assets creates a negative impact on the generation, transmission, and/or delivery of power. This document provides a fifth draft of results from a TWG1 work effort to develop a set of failure scenarios, prioritize them, and develop detailed information about the highest priority failure scenarios.
