Global Push to Boost Energy Supply Chain Cybersecurity: Sullivan

The White House

Energy systems around the world face continuous cyber attacks and are vulnerable to disruption. As new digital clean energy technologies are integrated, we must ensure they are cyber secure to prevent destruction or disruption in services. This is a global issue and at the G7 Leaders' Summit in Apulia, President Biden and G7 leaders committed to taking critical action to strengthen the cybersecurity of the global supply chain of key technologies used to manage and operate electricity, oil, and natural gas systems across the world. The G7 will work to establish a collective cybersecurity framework for operational technologies for both manufacturers and operators. This builds on the White House Council on Supply Chain Resilience's work to strengthen supply chains critical to America's economic and national security. It also builds upon the efforts of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Idaho National Laboratory which have brought tremendous expertise to bear in securing operational technologies to date.

We are pleased that several prominent suppliers and manufacturers serving the energy sector have already expressed support for a new set of Supply Chain Cybersecurity Principles released today by DOE, including: GE Vernova, Schneider Electric, Hitachi Energy, Honeywell, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Rockwell Automation, Siemens and Siemens Energy.
