DIANE Publishing, 2009 - 64 pages
In 2006, a Los Alamos Nat. Lab. (LANL) contract employee unlawfully removed classified information from the lab. This was the latest in a series of high-profile security incidents at LANL spanning almost a decade. LANL conducts research on nuclear weapons and other nat. security areas for the Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. This report: (1) identifies LANL┐s major programs and activities and how much they rely on classified resources; (2) identifies initiatives LANL is taking to reduce and consolidate its classified resources and physical footprints and the extent to which these initiatives address earlier security concerns; and (3) determines whether its new mgmt. approaches will sustain security improvements over the long-term.
