About the ConferenceIn alignment with the DOE Cyber Strategy, the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) is hosting the DOE Cyber Conference. The conference brings the DOE enterprise together, including Program Offices, Power Marketing Administrations, Plants, Site Offices, and National Laboratories, as well as our interagency and international partners, and private sector, to create an inclusive, transparent, and collaborative environment to further information sharing and information safeguarding.
The conference enables DOE leadership to deliver their message in-person, in an interactive forum that provides the opportunity for communication and collaboration. It provides a dynamic platform to share information that supports the Department’s success in achieving its critically important national security and ensuring mission success.
The goals are to convene the brightest minds from across the extended DOE Enterprise to interact with key speakers and presenters from federal interagency, academia, private sector, and international arena that are dynamic thought leaders in cyber. The OCIO seeks to establish an inclusive, transparent, and collaborative environment that will engender information sharing and information safeguarding best practices, prompt dialog that will further the Department's cyber mission, and foster partnerships.
The conference also creates a forum for DOE senior staff to interact with the cyber workforce and engage in strategic small group discussions to enhance recruiting, developing, and retaining our most important resource, our people.
