On May 16, the Bipartisan Policy Center launched the Electric Grid Cyber Security Initiative, a program designed to address cybersecurity issues with the electric grid. The initiative will focus on responsibility allocation, information sharing, and privacy protections. A public workshop will be held this summer, and a white paper will be released in the fall. It is co-chaired by former Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden, former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Curt Herbert, and former Assistant Secretary of Energy Sue Tierney.
