SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on February 12, 2014, DOE has engaged both private and public sector stakeholders for the development of the Energy Sector Framework Implementation Guidance (Guidance). The DOE is currently collaborating with private sector stakeholders through the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council (ESCC) and the Oil & Natural Gas Subsector Coordinating Council (ONG SCC) forums. The DOE is also coordinating with other Sector Specific Agency (SSA) representatives and interested government stakeholders for the development of the Guidance.

The DOE invites energy sector stakeholder participation in bi-weekly conference calls being held jointly by the ESCC and ONG SCC forums. These forums also provide periodic opportunities for participants to comment on the incremental updates to the Draft Framework Implementation Guidance document. The document is being designed to help energy sector stakeholders develop or align existing cybersecurity risk management programs with the Cybersecurity Framework. The document will also take into consideration energy sector organizations that may have business activities across multiple critical infrastructure sectors, e.g., Dams, Transportation, Chemicals, etc. requiring a harmonized implementation approach with these other sectors.
