Karen Evans, Assistant Secretary of Energy for Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response, discusses her office’s authorities, and working with the private sector to secure energy infrastructure.


The Department of Energy has stood up a new office dedicated to ensuring the security of the nation’s energy infrastructure. The Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response will put Power plants, installations, and DoE’s own laboratories under the microscope, and prepare them for worst-case scenarios. Karen Evans is the assistant secretary of Energy for CESER, and she says that they have an important mission.   “We’re really about looking at cybersecurity and energy security overall, all‑hazards approach, and having an emergency response to that. Our job is defined through the FAST act. We are the sector-specific agency as it relates to energy.” said Evans. “In that role, we are really looking at the national security aspects associated with that. What is the role of the Department of Energy? My office in particular, because the infrastructure is owned by private industry, is making sure the partnership between private industry and the federal government is established and maximize and leverage the existing partnerships that are already there.”
