National Security

The Department has four overriding National Security priorities:  insuring the integrity and safety of the country's nuclear weapons; promoting international nuclear safety; advancing nuclear non-proliferation; and, continuing to provide safe, efficient, and effective nuclear power plants for the United States Navy.

Cyber Security Protection
Cyber Security programs protect the information and systems that the Department depends on as DOE increasingly relies on new technology. The Department works to preserve the integrity, reliability, availability, and confidentiality of important information while maintaining its information systems.
