The Cybersecurity Procurement Language for Energy Delivery Systems guidance covers cybersecurity technology procurement strategies and is based on similar guidelines for control systems developed in 2009, DOE said Monday.

“As we deploy advanced technologies to make the U.S. power grid more reliable and resilient, we must simultaneously advance cybersecurity protections,” said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

“The cybersecurity guidance released today will help industry further strengthen these technologies and protect our critical energy infrastructure.”

DOE sought to help utilities and other energy sector organizations purchase technologies that include cybersecurity protections and features, as well as to ensure that cyber requirements are met for testing, manufacturing, delivery and installation of new technologies.
