Natural Gas Exercise (NGX) – Virtual

Sep 8, 2022 12:00pm – 4:00pm est

NGX is a virtual, distributed play exercise tailored to AGA and INGAA member companies to create an interactive environment to test and validate plans for the response to and recovery from cybersecurity and physical security threats. The inaugural NGX will take place September 8, 2022 for a half day session, from 12:00 – 4:00 PM EDT.

The goal of this exercise is to test business continuity and incident response plans following a cyber or physical event. Objectives include:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of business continuity plans to address cyber and physical incidents impacting both transmission and distribution providers.
  • Assess the efficacy of prioritization plans given the restrictions of available natural gas to meet firm service and interruptible contractual obligations in a cyber-contested environment.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of mandatory and voluntary information sharing channels to support incident response and business continuity.
