The U.S. Department of Energy’s Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program is holding a Peer Review in Arlington, Virginia, where energy industry representatives can learn about cutting-edge cyber R&D in active projects and provide input on future CEDS research priorities.
CEDS R&D projects deliver advanced tools and technologies for the energy sector’s operational technology (OT)—the digital systems and networks that control energy delivery. To reduce cyber risk to these specialized systems, CEDS and its R&D partners are developing innovative capabilities for energy delivery systems and devices to prevent attacks, detect malicious activity, and automatically adapt to survive cyber-attacks while sustaining critical functions.
The 2018 Peer Review provides an opportunity to directly engage with researchers designing the next generation of cybersecurity solutions for the energy sector. Researchers from each of the projects will present their project(s) and progress and respond to expert review panel questions and discussion.
The CEDS Peer Review is open to the public and is a great opportunity for representatives of the energy industry to learn more about the program’s extensive research portfolio.
