The Cybersecurity Strategy also establishes the guiding principles and strategic approach needed to drive both near- and long-term priorities for DOE Enterprise and energy-sector cybersecurity. It aligns with related frameworks and strategies, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)'s Cybersecurity Framework, and the President's Management Agenda.
 
The strategy will provide critical support to DOE’s Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER), the office dedicated to cybersecurity and incident response activities for the energy sector.
