Presidential Policy Directive 41 (PPD-41), United States Cyber Incident Coordination (July 2016), provides three concurrent lines of effort to respond to any cyber incident involving government or private-sector entities: (1) threat response; (2) asset response; and (3) intelligence support and related activities. CESER is responsible for the coordination of the energy sector response at a national level during emergency events. DOE CESER is responsible for ensuring that field-level representatives are placed and are able to coordinate a response to threat events with the individual entities affected. PPD-41 ensures that DOE is included in the Cyber Unified Coordination Group (C-UCG) as the SSA for the energy sector.
Through CyOTE™, CESER looks to further its vision of secure and reliable energy delivery systems nationwide.
During any disaster the Department’s emergency responders work with industry and government partners to aid in restoring power to those impacted.
