RICHLAND, Wash. - EM federal and contractor employees from across the DOE complex recently gathered at the Hanford Site to collaborate on information technology (IT) and cybersecurity topics, including how best to support the cleanup program’s focus on safe, environmentally responsible, and cost-effective risk-reduction cleanup activities. The semi-annual EM IT Collaboration Meeting allows participants to share innovative technical solutions to cross-site issues and consider sharing services. DOE headquarters representatives also discuss organizational changes and new or upcoming changes to requirements, regulations, and directives. For example, DOE Chief Information Officer Max Everett provided insight into federal IT and cybersecurity initiatives such as the Modernizing Government Technology Act. The group toured the B Reactor, the world's first full-scale plutonium production reactor, and other parts of Hanford to understand the site’s cleanup mission and the role of IT and cybersecurity.
