CESER plays a major role in responding to immediate challenges to America's energy security to protect against all hazards – both manmade and natural – and help ensure the secure, reliable and resilient flow of electricity needed for the vital services that Americans rely on every day.

Energy Security: CESER improves the ability of energy sector stakeholders to prevent, prepare for, and respond to threats, hazards, natural disasters, and other supply disruptions.

Cybersecurity: In today’s highly interconnected world, reliable energy delivery requires cyber-resilient energy delivery systems. The vision of CESER’s cybersecurity program is that, by 2020, resilient energy delivery systems are designed, installed, operated, and maintained to survive a cyber-incident while sustaining critical functions.
