Adam S. Lee is Dominion Energy’s Vice President and Chief Security Officer.

He directs the development and implementation of corporate security policies and procedures designed to protect physical and cyber assets. He is the liaison with all outside government and law enforcement agencies on physical and cyber security matters for Dominion Energy. Lee joined the company in this role in 2018.

Before joining Dominion Energy, Lee served as Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Richmond Division. In 2018, he retired from the FBI after a 22-year career focused on criminal, counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence, and cyber investigations.  

A conference experience unlike any other…in America’s finest city!

 

​This Summit is unprecedented in its mix of security leadership.  You will hear from Congress, the White House, the FBI, and the Department of Justice on the current state of cyberlaw, enforcement, and prosecution.  And you will join them and 200 of your peers from more than 15 US Federal departments and agencies, US state and local, tech innovators, and security officers from energy, finance, transportation, and communications in a highly interactive agenda and unmatched networking that begins with an opening reception symbolically on the flight deck of the USS Midway.  

Modeled after government technology’s premier annual summit and global stage, EDGE@CES, this summer’s EDGESecuritySummit22 marks the inaugural second major conference production of the GBEF.
