As part of the Obama Administration’s goals to enhance the security and reliability of the Nation’s energy infrastructure, the U.S. Department of Energy released the 2011 Roadmap to Achieve Energy Delivery Systems Cybersecurity.  Developed as an update to the 2006 Roadmap to Secure Control Systems in the Energy Sector, the report outlines a strategic framework over the next decade among industry, vendors, academia and government stakeholders to design, install, operate, and maintain a resilient energy delivery system capable of surviving a cyber incident while sustaining critical functions.

Developed by the Energy Sector Control Systems Working Group, a partnership of energy infrastructure cybersecurity leaders from government and industry, the 2011 Roadmap signifies a continued effort by public and private stakeholders to identify steps to build, deploy, and improve the cyber resilience of the nation’s computer-based systems that manage operational processes in the electric, oil, and natural gas industries.
