Goal Statement: Identify, contain, and defeat cyber threats to our Nation’s energy delivery systems through a shared understanding between industry and government of adversarial techniques to mitigate energy sector cyber-attacks. DOE will have dramatically improved our National energy sector’s ability to identify, contain, and defeat cybersecurity threats. Out of 47 commonly known types of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) cyber-attack techniques, our partnership with the energy sector will improve sharing of operational and information technology data and will be capable to detect and mitigate at least 24 of the commonly known techniques of cyber-attacks by September 30, 2021 as compared to four in FY 2019.
