Oak Ridge, Tenn., May 4, 2020 – With so many people working from home (and having their kids at home spending time on the computer), the importance of strong cybersecurity is more important than ever.

UCOR, an Amentum-led partnership with Jacobs, is DOE’s leading environmental cleanup partner. Since August 2011, UCOR has worked to reduce environmental risk by cleaning up legacy facilities from the former Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant, allowing DOE to repurpose the land and buildings for use as a multi-use industrial park, national park, and conservation area. The company is also cleaning up contaminated facilities that are no longer in use at ORNL and Y-12, reducing environmental risk and helping the DOE Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration to continue their missions.
