- DOE Announces 100-Day Plan to Address Cybersecurity Risks to the U.S. Electric System
On April 20th, 2021, the Department of Energy (DOE) launched an initiative to enhance the cybersecurity of electric utilities’ industrial control systems (ICS) and secure the energy supply chain. The 100 day plan, which is a coordinated effort between the DOE, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the electricity industry, “represents swift, aggressive actions to confront cyber threats from adversaries who seek to compromise critical systems that are essential to U.S. national and economic security”.https://www.energy.gov/articles/biden-administration-takes-bold-action-protect-electricity-operations-increasing-cyber-0
In addition, DOE released a new Request for Information (RFI) to seek input from electric utilities, energy companies, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders to inform future recommendations for supply chain security in U.S. energy systems.
The RFI is available on the Office of Electricity’s web page, and responses will be due by 5 p.m. ET on Monday, June 7, 2021: www.energy.gov/oe/securing-critical-electric-infrastructure
