Argonne National Laboratory Tour and Cybersecurity Briefing
Thursday MAY 14, 2015
Please join us for a unique opportunity to tour Argonne National Laboratory (www.anl.gov) and to learn more about Argonne’s current Cloud Technology Study (more information below), overall cybersecurity capabilities, and their research and related work on logistics and transportation.
Argonne National Laboratory is a science and engineering research national laboratory located near Lemont, IL. It is the largest national laboratory by size and scope in the Midwest. Argonne was initially formed to carry out Enrico Fermi’s work on nuclear reactors as part of the Manhattan Project, and it was designated as the first national laboratory in the United States on July 1, 1946. Today it maintains a broad portfolio in basic science research, energy storage and renewable energy, environmental sustainability, supercomputing, and national security.
Cloud Technology Study:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Cyber and Infrastructure Analysis’ (OCIA) purpose for the Cloud Study is to increase the visibility into potential National level consequences resulting from cloud adoption among the Nation’s key infrastructure sectors. The end product will include a cloud computing consequence analysis on the following critical infrastructure sectors: 1) Energy, 2) Financial Services, 3) Communications, 4) Transportation Systems, 5) Healthcare and Public Health, and 6) Manufacturing.
