Abstract : This report describes a Cyber Mutual Assistance Workshop (CMAW), its significance, and its outcomes. The CMAW was intended to explore the interconnectedness of the North American Power Sector and possible sources of aid, should the sector fall victim to a cyber attack. The objective of the CMAW was to enable better understanding of capabilities, not only in the sectors own cyber security workforce, but in possible mutual support from city, state, and federal government entities, and across other sectors cyber security communities. The Army Cyber Institute, alongside the Electric Infrastructure Security Council and the Software Engineering Institutes CERT Coordination Center, aimed to explore and evoke national conversation on the possibility of mutual cyber assistance in times of duress and the importance to that endeavor of prior under-standing and relationships between concerned parties.
