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.
