Government priorities


Energy infrastructure resilience

The Australian Government undertakes activities to support enhanced energy sector resilience to all hazards, including the resilience of energy infrastructure to natural disasters, cyber-attack and other human and environmental threats.

The department provides secretariat support for the Electricity Sector Group (ESG) of the Trusted Information Sharing Network (TISN), which is the Australian Government’s primary engagement mechanism with industry on critical infrastructure.

The TISN ESG is a forum where owners and operators of critical electricity infrastructure and governments come together to share information on security issues and practical measures to improve the resilience of electricity infrastructure to all hazards.

There are two more relevant TISN sector groups, Liquid Fuel and Gas, which are directly managed and supported by the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Centre.
