Michael Anastasio Statement on LLNL's Security Incident

"I am stunned by the information I received late last night regarding the loss of a security guard’s access card. I have directed immediate and aggressive steps to ensure that access to Lab assets with this card is prohibited. While the individual who lost the card reported the incident in an appropriate and timely manner there is absolutely no excuse for the time delay in getting this information to senior management. Personnel action will be forthcoming. We will work closely with DOE/NNSA and UC on this investigation."
