David Lambert, Director and Senior Security Specialist for Gregg Protection Services, has been named chair of the new INMM ad hoc committee -- Cyber/Physical Security Integration Committee.
A senior member of INMM, Lambert’s vision for the committee is to incorporate security of computer-based systems and cyber protections dialogue into all relevant aspects of the other Technical Divisions and the INMM itself. Using the expert resources from the INMM membership, the committee will assess the coverage of cyber security in all technical tutorials, training efforts, educational materials, and operations, and provide expert input to integrate cyber aspects into the Institute. Once this is accomplished, the Committee will develop and implement a standard process of continuous evaluation by which the Executive Committee can analyze and evaluate incorporation and promotion.
Lambert has a 40-year career in security, including 20+ years in Safeguards and Security at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He served as the Senior Nuclear Security Training Officer for two years at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) prior to joining Gregg Protection Services in 2014. From 2009 to 2012, Lambert was a Senior Security Specialist, Alutiiq LLC, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama. Prior to his retirement in 2009, Lambert served as Deputy Director for Program Development for the Global Security and Nonproliferation Program Office, UT/Battelle, LLC, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
He’s a trained Vulnerability Assessment analyst, crisis negotiator, and a DOE-certified Instructor, among other areas of expertise. Lambert led several projects with the Russian Ministry of Defense, including the Kola Technical Center (KTC) project that won a national DOE Award of Excellence. During his tenure at the IAEA, he was instrumental in the publishing of IAEA TECDOC 1724 “Establishing a National Nuclear Security Support Centre” and helped many Member States to plan and create nuclear security training and support centres. Today, Lambert continues his work in the area of nuclear security sustainability as the Training Manager on a project in Kazakhstan for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
