About the Conference
Leveraging Innovation to Meet Future Challenges
About the EventThe DOE Cybersecurity and Technology Innovation Conference is an annual capstone event designed to strengthen relationships, expand upon cybersecurity and innovation strategies and tactics with our geographically dispersed partners, provide development opportunities and promote a diverse workforce by sharing best practices and lessons learned. The agenda is being crafted to advance innovation and cyber priorities in a way that dovetails with the Secretary’s goals of combating the climate crisis, creating clean energy union jobs, and promoting energy justice.
To protect the health and safety of all conference attendees, the 2022 conference will be a hybrid event consisting of both in-person and virtual attendance.
Virtual attendance will be accessible via an online platform which will include live streaming of all plenary and track sessions, as well as access to view the exhibitor booth information.
