The Department of Energy is investing a maximum of $28M in research, development and demonstration efforts aiming to support U.S. energy infrastructure cybersecurity.

The DOE said Monday its Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response will partner with industry to develop cyber threat mitigation, detection and prevention technologies.

“These awards will spur the next level of innovation needed to advance cyber resilience, ensuring that the nation’s critical energy infrastructure can withstand potential cyber attacks while also still keeping the lights on," said Rick Perry, secretary of energy.

The 11 funded projects all support the department's Multiyear Plan for Energy Sector Cybersecurity that aims to encourage partnerships across government and industry.
