ABSTRACT

Vulnerability Assessment and Survey Program: Lessons Learned and Best Practices   [open pdf - 180KB]

This report summarizes initial lessons learned and best practices that have been captured as part of a multifaceted effort by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Assurance (OEA) to work with the Energy Sector in developing the capability required for protecting the nation's energy infrastructures. Over the last three years, a team of national laboratory experts, working in partnership with the energy industry, has performed a series of vulnerability assessments as part of OEA's Vulnerability Assessment and Survey Program. The goal is to help energy-sector organizations identify and understand the threats to and vulnerabilities (physical and cyber) of their infrastructures, and to stimulate action to mitigate significant problems. Because the assessments are conducted on a confidential basis, the information in this report is intentionally presented at a high level so as not to reflect on specific companies or industry segments. A separate report entitled Vulnerability Assessment and Survey Methodology describes, at a high-level, the methodology developed for the program.
