Security & Resilience Committee Launches  March 17

PJM’s new Security and Resilience Advisory Committee will hold its first meeting March 17.

PJM established the committee to inform membership on issues related to physical security, cybersecurity and resilience through effective collaboration, coordination and timely communications.

Under the committee’s charter, its meetings will not be open to the public or to the media. Participation by external partners (such as government or private sector entities) is by invitation only. The Members Committee approved the committee at its January meeting.

The advisory committee is non-decisional and will work with the Transmission Owners Agreement Administrative Committee, the Operating Committee and Planning Committee on matters related to the reliable operation of the PJM system and planning strategies to assure secure and resilient systems.

The committee will also take part in planning and participating in exercises such as the GridEx IV in November and other grid security exercises.
