Department of Energy to Co-Host Conference on Security Investments for Energy Infrastructure

Feb 8, 2019

The Department of Energy recently announced that it will co-host a technical conference in conjunction with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Security Investments for Energy Infrastructure. The main goal of the conference will be to discuss security practices to protect energy infrastructure.

“The threats against our nation’s energy infrastructure, particularly the electric and natural gas sectors, continue to grow and the responsibility for protecting our energy infrastructure is shared across industry as well as states and the federal government,” FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee said. “In light of this shared responsibility, we will join with DOE to explore current threats against energy infrastructure, best practices for mitigation, current incentives for investing in physical and cyber security protections, and current cost recovery practices at both the state and federal level.”

The conference will take place in Washington, DC at the FERC headquarters on March 28th at 10am. The event will be open and free to the public, but pre-registration is encouraged. The event will be webcast live.
