TimeThursday, September 161:30pm - 2:15pm CDT
DescriptionCritical infrastructure sectors are ones whose assets, systems, and virtual and physical networks are considered so vital to the United States that their damage or destruction would be catastrophic to our nation’s security, economy, and/or public health. The Department of Energy’s national laboratories perform scientific research and analyses to help secure our nation’s infrastructure. This session will explore some of those approaches to serve as a lens to the impactful innovation performed at national laboratories. Topics will include the recent high-visibility cyber-attacks targeting the Colonial Pipeline and an attempt to poison the water supply at a water utility in Florida.
