D.7.3 - Energy resource management
Energy resource management involves the management of energy producing resources including facilities, land, and offshore resources.
The recommended provisional categorization of the energy resource management information type follows:
The confidentiality impact level is the effect of unauthorized disclosure of energy resource management information on the activities of responsible agencies with respect to management of energy producing resources including facilities, land, and offshore resources. Special Factors Affecting Confidentiality Impact Determination: Unauthorized disclosure of much energy resource management information can result in major financial consequences and impact financial markets and have a severe adverse effect on public confidence in the agency. In some cases, the probable consequences of damage to public confidence in the agency can even be high. Recommended Confidentiality Impact Level: The consequences of unauthorized disclosure of some energy resource management information would have only a limited adverse effect on agency operations. However, the consequences that can be expected to result from unauthorized disclosure of most energy resource management information justify a moderate provisional confidentiality impact level.
The integrity impact level is based on the specific mission and the data supporting that mission, not on the time required to detect the modification or destruction of information. The consequences of unauthorized modification or destruction of energy resource management information may depend on the urgency with which the information is typically needed. Unauthorized modification or destruction of information affecting external communications (e.g., web pages, electronic mail) may adversely affect operations and/or public confidence in the agency, but the damage to the mission would usually be limited Special Factors Affecting Integrity Impact Determination: If the energy resource management information is mission-critical or very sensitive, the integrity impact level may be moderate or high. Recommended Integrity Impact Level: The provisional integrity impact level recommended for most energy resource management information is low.
The availability impact level is based on the specific mission and the data supporting that mission, not on the time required to re-establish access to energy resource management information. Generally, missions supported by energy resource management information are tolerant of delay. Recommended Availability Impact Level: The provisional availability impact level recommended for energy resource management information is low.
