The Los Alamos National Laboratory suffers from cybersecurity weaknesses
that affect how it protects information on its sensitive but
unclassified network, according to a new report  from the Government
That network includes sensitive data such as controlled nuclear
information, export control information, and personally identifiable
information about employees of the national lab, the GAO report released
Sept. 25 explained.
The nuclear weapons lab, in Los Alamos, N.M., has experienced breaches
in its security in several incidents over the last decade. It was
budgeted nearly $200 million in fiscal 2007 to provide for physical and
cybersecurity. Despite improvements, the facility continues to have gaps
in its physical security and cybersecurity, the GAO report concluded.
“Our review of cybersecurity at Los Alamos National Laboratory found
that the laboratory has implemented measures to enhance its information
security, but weaknesses remain in protecting the confidentiality,
integrity and availability of information on its unclassified network,”
the report said.
