Security at ORISE is safeguarding employees, property and information

Operational security at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is prioritized through a comprehensive program that protects facilities, personnel, property, sensitive information, and classified materials from loss or destruction by dissidents, terrorists, foreign intelligence, criminal activity, and insider threats. 

ORISE boasts a near flawless record when it comes to protecting its employees, property and information. Modeled after DOE’s own security framework, ORISE security thwarts physical security breaches, cyber attacks and malevolent intrusions that result in network downtime. Because ORISE’s overall security plan and implementation are solid, DOE has presented ORISE with high marks in security. 

At ORISE, security is specifically focused in these areas: 

Program planning and management
Developing safeguards and security plans, conducting risk assessments, and performing self-assessments.

Cyber security
Performing forensics and cyber security analyses, monitoring network traffic, developing cyber security policies and procedures, and promoting awareness through exercises and training.

Physical security
Performing physical patrols and managing visitor control and facility access.

Information security
Protecting classified information, providing security awareness briefings, and performing operations security.

Personnel security
