Learn more about the Distributed Energy Resource Cybersecurity Framework team.
Tami Reynolds is a group manager for NREL's Cyber Risk Optimization Group. She provides technical leadership in building out the Distributed Energy Resources Cybersecurity Framework tool to industry and federal partners. She works closely with partners to develop a deep understanding of applying the Department of Energy Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model and National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework to their renewable and distributed energy systems for the evaluation of cyber and physical security. Reynolds provides leadership in developing the Distributed Energy Resource Risk Manager, an NREL tool that will address the NIST Risk Management Framework with a focus on distributed energy resources. She works closely with chief information officers and chief information security officers of private industry partners to conduct cybersecurity assessments in the electric sector, and she provides support to the U.S. Agency for International Development in developing cybersecurity programs in developing countries.
Tim Coleman brings software development and management experience with a master's degree in computer science. His interests include distributed application design, virtualization, software defined networking, and cybersecurity. Coleman previously worked in NREL's Commercial Buildings group. He currently supports DER-CF as a developer.
Ryan Cryar’s background is in application and backend development. Within security, he specializes in cryptography with a focus on public key infrastructure and connecting energy systems to trust networks. Cryar is the lead developer for the DER-CF and DER-RM applications.
Shane McFly’s research interests include cyber-physical systems security, complex system architecture, and cyber range development for cybersecurity research exercises. McFly leads the effort toward integrating the DER-CF with NREL's cyber range.
