Seal of the United States Department of Energy.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz has announced a new public-private partnership comprised of the Energy Department, industry experts, the Department of Homeland Security and other stakeholders. “As cyber threats continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, helping critical infrastructure owners and operators across the energy sector identify opportunities to strengthen their own cybersecurity capabilities is a top priority,” Moniz said in announcing the partnership. “Building on the successes in the electricity industry, this initiative for the oil and gas sector is an important step in moving us closer to achieving the Department’s vision of resilient energy delivery systems that can survive a cyber incident while sustaining critical functions.”
