Grid 20/20: Focus on Security & Resilience

Grid 20/20: Focus on Security & Resilience


The purpose of Grid 20/20: Focus on Security & Resilience is to facilitate a discussion that will explore the concept of resilience in planning, operations & markets, and cyber & physical security. This is the second of two events focused on resilience this year.

Earlier this summer, PJM released a Resilience Road Map charting a high-level course for broadly evaluating and considering resilience across operations, planning, markets, and security. Panelists will provide responses and perspectives on areas to evaluate, offer thoughts on the intersection of resilience and security, and provide perspectives on potential solutions to the challenges discussed.


Key Topics:

Panel members will define and consider resilience efforts with respect to:

  • Planning
  • Cyber & Physical Security
  • Operations & Markets
