Webinar on DOE cybersecurity procurement guide is set for May 20
The Utilities Telecom Council (UTC) and the Energy Sector Control Systems Working Group (ESCSWG) will host a webinar on May 20 on the Department of Energy’s recently released guide, Cybersecurity Procurement Language for Energy Delivery Systems. The webinar will be held from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. A registration form is available online.
The guide provides language that can help asset owners, operators, suppliers, and integrators address some of the sector’s evolving cybersecurity needs by providing a starting point for these stakeholders to communicate expectations and requirements in a clear and repeatable manner. The guide was developed to raise awareness and support among a broad spectrum of stakeholders for incorporating cybersecurity into the procurement process.
"Including cybersecurity in the procurement process can ensure that those purchasing and supplying energy delivery systems consider cybersecurity starting from the design phase of system development," the guide states. "This further ensures that cybersecurity is implemented throughout the testing, manufacturing, delivery, installation, and support phases of the product life cycle, improving overall reliability and reducing cybersecurity risks."
