Excessing of Computers Used for Unclassified Controlled Information at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
National Laboratory (LLNL) is a research and development institution that supports the core mission of national security. The University of California manages and operates LLNL for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). DOE spends over $2 billion each year on information technology and has a current inventory of approximately 800 information systems, including up to 115,000 personal computers, many powerful supercomputers, numerous servers, and a broad array of related peripheral equipment. The unclassified computers and electronic memory devices in these information technology systems may contain “unclassified controlled information.” This term includes unclassified controlled nuclear information, proprietary information, export controlled information, official use only information, and personally identifiable information, which can include employee social security number, place of birth, and date of birth.
