Description (excerpt):

Today, a fleet of digital devices is necessary to balance the power grid and supply electric power to the nation. Energy production and distribution will only increase its reliance on these digital technologies as energy systems continue to shift toward low-emissions and high-efficiency technologies. To deliver reliable, abundant, low-cost, high-efficiency, low-emissions energy, the energy sector must be defended against disruption by cyber threats that range from criminal to geopolitical.

The recommendations offered by this Task Force would strengthen American cybersecurity readiness in the energy sector. Aligning federal agencies with the needed authorities for current and future energy markets, would close gaps in uneven regulatory frameworks, and would provide private sector partners with clarity and certainty likely to encourage investment in cybersecurity measures.
