About AGA’s Cybersecurity Efforts
AGA advocates for reasonable and effective cybersecurity policies and programs to help bolster federal government and industry partnerships as well as promote coordination among government agencies.
AGA’s cybersecurity initiatives and actions ensure that Federal policies and programs address the cybersecurity concerns of natural gas utilities.
AGA and its members actively engage in cybersecurity risk management practices, ensuring the continued safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to our customers. These measures aim to:
- minimize the risk of cyber risks and vulnerabilities;
- improve our collective capability to monitor, detect, and respond to incidents;
- mitigate the impact of successful cybersecurity incidents; and
- implement security measures that reduce the risk of disruption from cybersecurity incidents.
AGA is an active member of the Oil & Natural Gas Sector Coordinating Council (ONG SCC) and currently chairs the ONG SCC Cybersecurity Work Group. AGA is also active in the security-related activities of other organizations, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and sister energy trade associations.
The AGA Board identified cybersecurity as a leading priority for its members and appointed the development of the AGA Cybersecurity Strategy Task Force to guide member actions and initiatives related to cybersecurity. This group seeks to reduce the threat of a cyber attack and provide the technical expertise needed to support cybersecurity advocacy initiatives. All full and limited members are encouraged to actively participate in the task force.
