Abstract:

Image of Roadmap to Achieve Energy Delivery Systems Cybersecurity - September 2011The DOE Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program is working in partnership with the energy sector to advance the vision of resilient energy delivery systems that are designed, installed, operated and maintained to survive a cyber-incident while sustaining critical functions. This presentation will describe how the program aligns with the energy sector’s 2011 Roadmap to Achieve Energy Delivery Systems Cybersecurity strategy and milestones.

The energy sector cybersecurity community, whether or not participating in the CEDS program, has made impressive advances relevant to the Roadmap milestones. The Roadmap website, https://www.controlsystemsroadmap.net, offers a forum for discussion of these advances. The CEDS program has engaged nine DOE National Laboratories in a coordinated effort to identify Roadmap milestones that have completed, are in-process, or have newly arisen since the Roadmap was last updated in 2011.

A number of the National Laboratories will be participating in this presentation providing examples of tools, technologies, guidance documents, processes, or other evidence that supports the energy sector’s advancement of Roadmap milestones.  The National Laboratories will be reaching out to energy sector stakeholders to support this Roadmap milestone analysis. The DOE National Laboratories welcome participation from across the energy sector. If you would like to participate, please contact one of the nine DOE National Laboratories engaged in this effort. Contact information will be provided during the briefing. A report that summarizes the results of this analysis will be made available toward the end of this year, and will help inform DOE activities.

Biography:

Carol Hawk, Ph.D. is Manager of the Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) R&D Program for the office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability in the Department of Energy (DOE). Dr. Hawk conducted her Ph.D. research in High-Energy Physics at Rutgers University as a member of the Collider Detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Collaboration. The CEDS R&D program is working to advance the energy sector’s Roadmap vision of resilient energy delivery systems designed, installed, operated, and maintained to survive a cyber-incident while sustaining critical functions. In addition, she brings a variety of work experiences to DOE including telecommunications (at Bell Communications Research) as well as fuel cell electrochemistry (at United Technologies Research Center and later at the University of Connecticut). Prior to joining the DOE, Dr. Hawk performed operations research with the Center for Naval Analyses.

About the CREDC Seminar Series:

This seminar series is presented by the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC), a multi-university research effort. CREDC, a successor to the earlier TCIPG Project, was founded in 2016 with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It is housed in the Information Trust Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
