Significant Projects

Integrated Joint Cybersecurity Coordination Center

The Integrated Joint Cybersecurity Coordination Center, or IJC3, is a strategic partnership across the DOE complex to unify the cyber talent and provide a collaborative, intelligence-driven, distributed approach to cyber operations and response. This approach engages the full capabilities of the complex and protects the full DOE attack surface. The objective is to streamline and automate cybersecurity reporting and information sharing across DOE to strengthen defense, detection, and response.

Cooperative Protection Program

The Cooperative Protection Program, or CPP, equips the DOE cyber defense community with targeted information and rapid response to emerging threats by:

  • Delivering sophisticated sensor technologies
  • Advancing innovative analytical techniques
  • Establishing effective collaborations through robust information sharing.

Cybersecurity Risk Information Sharing Program

The Cybersecurity Risk Information Sharing Program, known as CRISP, is a public-private partnership. The program facilitates the timely sharing of cyber threat information and develops situational awareness tools to better protect against and respond to cybersecurity threats. The capability enhances the Energy Sector’s ability to identify, prioritize, and coordinate the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources, reducing the risk of energy disruptions due to cyber events.
