About the Speaker

Jesse Reisman has been working in the federal government since 2002, primarily in the cyber-related areas of counterterrorism, intelligence and inside threat.  Prior to entering the federal government his professional career included new media manager for an overseas satellite broadcasting company, running a dot com-era software company and reporter and editor for newspapers in Florida, Texas and California.

About the Department of Energy’s Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) traces its origin to the Manhattan Project, which enlisted scientists studying fundamental physics to produce the first atomic weapons, and to the various energy-related programs that were dispersed throughout the federal government prior to DOE’s creation in 1977.

Today, the Department of Energy contributes to the future of the nation by…

…ensuring our energy security…
…producing and maintaining our nuclear stockpile…
…promoting nuclear nonproliferation, and…
…fostering fundamental science, advanced computing and technological innovation.

The mission of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence is to identify and mitigate threats to U.S. national security and the DOE Enterprise and inform national security decisionmaking through scientific and technical expertise. The Office functions within the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), with accountability to both the Secretary of Energy and the Director of National Intelligence.
