U.S. - Israel Energy Center
On Friday, March 6, 2020, U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette and Israel's Minister of Energy Dr. Yuval Steinitz announced the funding opportunity for the Energy Cyber Consortium.
This unique consortium will help combat attackers on energy producers by focusing their efforts on three key areas.
- Establishing a knowledge database of cyberattacks and develop predictive models
- Develop new monitoring technologies and tools
- Design tools to achieve resilience and robustness in futureproof architecture
The Israel-U.S. Initiative on Cybersecurity Research and Development for Energy (ICRDE) will research, develop, evaluate and demonstrate new technologies to solve critical challenges pertaining to cybersecurity of energy facilities, taking into consideration all phases of energy production and transmission.
Israel-US ICRDE is a consortium of leading research institutions, power utilities, and private companies. The Center will leverage core competencies of each partner to demonstrate high-value cyberattack mitigation technologies in both countries. Successful technology demonstrations, supported by techno-economic assessment and systems analysis, will deliver transformative cybersecurity solutions for Israel and the US, opening global markets for ICRDE technologies.
