LLNL Statement on Los Alamos Security Incident

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory officials were aware of the Los Alamos security incident as it was unfolding. We have offered our assistance to Los Alamos, DOE, the FBI and UC and we have conducted our own, parallel review to assure that Livermore assets have not been compromised. All Nuclear Emergency Search Team (NEST) data stored at LLNL was and is accounted for.


Founded in 1952, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is a national security laboratory that develops science and engineering technology and provides innovative solutions to our nation's most important challenges. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is managed by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration.
