About Us - Who We Are

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) CyberForce® Program is a workforce development program that seeks to inspire and develop the next generation of cyber defenders for the energy sector through hands-on competitions, webinars, learning resources, and career fairs. It strives to raise awareness of the nexus between critical infrastructure and cybersecurity through competitions that:

  • Make critical thinking and soft skills key components,
  • Focus on both OT and IT cyber skills,
  • Value both individual and team balanced work,
  • Emulate real-world energy scenarios, and
  • Build self confidence.
