Key Words


This document, the Roadmap to Secure Control Systems in the Energy Sector, outlines a coherent plan for improving cyber security in the energy sector. It is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between the energy sector and government to identify concrete steps to secure control systems used in the electricity, oil, and natural gas sectors over the next ten years. The Roadmap provides a strategic framework for guiding industry and government efforts based on a clear vision supported by goals and time-based milestones. It addresses the energy sector’s most urgent challenges as well as longer-term needs and practices.

A distinctive feature of this collaborative effort is the active involvement and leadership of energy asset owners and operators in developing the Roadmap content and priorities. The Roadmap synthesizes expert input from the control systems community, including owners and operators, commercial vendors, national laboratories, industry associations, and government agencies. The Roadmap project was funded and facilitated by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate and the Energy Infrastructure Protection Division of Natural Resources Canada.

The members of the Control Systems Roadmap Steering Group wish to thank members of the diverse control systems community who contributed their valuable ideas, insights, and time to make this Roadmap possible. In addition, we commend Hank Kenchington of DOE for his outstanding leadership in this important project.

We strongly encourage industry and government to adopt this Roadmap as a template for action. The Roadmap marks a beginning rather than an end. It will require continued support, commitment, and refinement from industry and government to fulfill its promise in the years ahead.
