The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Unclassified Cyber Security Program - 2008
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission depends on information technology to support its strategic goals of promoting the development of a strong energy infrastructure, supporting competitive markets, and preventing market manipulation. As with virtually all Government and private sector organizations, the Commission is faced with numerous and increasingly sophisticated attacks on its systems and data. To address this challenge and the continuing threat to its systems, the Commission expects to spend about $5 million in Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 to protect its IT infrastructure and data from cyber security related threats.
