Homeland Security

The DOE NNSA works with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in protecting the U.S. from nuclear and radiological terrorism. In June 1998, NTS became a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium and part of the U.S. Department of Justice Programs/Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP). After the Homeland Security Act of 2002, the Office for Domestic Preparedness was transferred to the Department of Homeland Security.

Facilities supporting this function of NTS include:

Cyber Forensics Center

The NNSA facility is 10,000 square feet and serves as the site of forensics examinations of computer evidence, the nuclear weapons complex cyber forensics lab and an intrusion analysis center for the nuclear weapons complex. NNSA's Information Assurance Response Center (IARC) provides a centralized location to assess national computer security for the nuclear weapons complex.
