"The nation's energy infrastructure has become a major target of cyber attacks over the past decade, with more frequent and sophisticated attacks that are increasingly launched by nation-states and cyber criminals. Despite ever-improving defenses, attackers have shifted their aim from exploitation to disruption and destruction. Today, a cyber incident has the potential to disrupt energy services, damage highly specialized equipment, and threaten human health and safety. This makes energy cybersecurity a top national priority that will require the federal government and the energy sector to work together to reduce cyber risks that could trigger a largescale or prolonged energy disruption. To address this priority, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (DOE OE) has prepared the DOE Multiyear Plan for Energy Sector Cybersecurity to improve cybersecurity and the resilience of the nation's energy system. The Plan aligns DOE's distinct roles and programs with the efforts of government, energy owners and operators, and key energy stakeholders, at all levels."
