The Brookhaven Lab Cyber Security Program establishes the policies and controls necessary to protect Lab computing and information resources while maintaining a computing environment that fosters scientific collaboration. The program operates in compliance with DOE requirements that flow down from the Office of Science Program Cyber Security Plan.
All Lab staff and non-Lab staff are responsible for the systems assigned to them, including any programs (software) and data that the system processes and stores. Furthermore, offices, local data centers, labs, and buildings must be physically secured when left unattended.
The Lab complies with the Department of Energy's consent for access to information (10 CFR 727) by having all users read and sign the Computer Use Agreement (PDF).
