The nation”s energy infrastructure unfortunately presents a prime target for would be terrorists.  Traditionally, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has provided for the public posting of a wide variety of detailed information on the infrastructure of the energy industries it regulates: the electricity, natural gas, hydroelectric, and oil industries. This information often includes detailed maps and other location and operational information that could potentially be useful in planning a terrorist attack. This information has become even more readily accessible due to Internet filing and posting of information. Recently, the FERC responded to concerns over the public availability of this information with a rule containing restrictions on the posting of certain infrastructure information, known as Critical Energy Infrastructure Information or CEII. This session will focus on understanding the breadth of this rule and what it means for companies developing and operating energy infrastructure in the United States.
