The goal of the Cybersecurity Center for Secure Evolvable Energy Delivery Systems (SEEDS) is to conduct research and develop innovative cybersecurity technologies, tools, and methodologies that advance the energy sector’s ability to survive cyber incidents while sustaining critical functions.

We use industry input and research validation to verify the efficacy of our developed solutions and methodologies, so that they can be transitioned to practical applications and commercialization in the energy sector.

We develop solutions for vulnerabilities across the United States’ energy delivery systems. This protects hardware assets, makes systems less susceptible to cyber threats, and provides reliable delivery of electricity, oil, natural gas, and other resources if a cyber incident occurs.
