Executive Summary

Energy-related systems that may be vulnerable to attack include those for fuel processing, power plant control, communications in buildings, pipelines, automated vehicles, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) for manufacturing.

The U.S Department of Energy (DOE) is committed to protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure from all threats, including cyber threats. DOE has addressed cybersecurity in a number of documents, including portions of the Quadrennial Energy Review and Quadrennial Technology Review.

In addition, DOE and the private sector have responded to the critical need for advanced cybersecurity by increasing research and development (R&D) investment in this sector.
