This is the March 14, 2018 hearing on "DOE Modernization: Legislation Addressing Cybersecurity and Emergency Response," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement Fred Upton: "This mission is to ensure the supply and delivery of energy that is vital to our economic and national security, our public welfare, and health. For the last two Congresses we have been working to update the Department's authorities and capabilities both to mitigate against and respond to energy supply emergencies, especially with respect to critical energy infrastructure and to cybersecurity. For example, we directed the Department to modernize its strategic petroleum reserve and response capabilities. We clarified and enhanced DOE's [United States Department of Energy] role as the sector-specific agency for the energy sector, especially for critical electric infrastructure. We moved through the House H.R. 3050 last summer to strengthen DOE's support for state energy emergency offices in their cybersecurity efforts and the common theme has been to update DOE's cybersecurity and emergency coordinating functions and provisions of technical assistance to other agencies, states, and asset owners. So in keeping with these modernization efforts, the legislation today continues that work." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mark Menezes, Tristan Vance, Zachary Tudor, Mark Engels, Kyle Pitsor, Scott Aaronson.
