Safety, security and safeguards - 22 July 2021

Please note that this event has passed.

Speaker: David Lambert, Senior Security Specialist, Gregg Protection Services, LLC

Chair: Karl Dewey, Research Associate at the Centre for Science and Security Studies (CSSS).

This month's Nuclear Security Culture Programme (NSCP) webinar will welcome David Lambert who will share his expertise and knowledge on safety, security and safeguards.

Within the international nuclear community, much attention is focused on the three programmes of Safety, Security and Safeguards, commonly known as 3S. They are integral parts of the International Atomic Energy Agency to ensure nuclear-related resources are protected from a diverse set of threats.

As individual programmes, implementation at a facility level is generally accomplished singularly, many times overlapping for reporting or compliance purposes. Integration of 3S is a familiar discussion topic among practitioners and academics, but achieving that integrated state is almost impossible for any of the three programmes individually.

This presentation will explore why such achievement is much more practical if approached from the Operations perspective, rather from one of the 3S programmes.

David Lambert is an expert in safeguarding and protection of identified interests and assets in support of nonproliferation, nuclear security and human resource development projects. He also has considerable expertise in the assessment of organizational and technical system performance to achieve that end. He uses his vast experience and creative perspectives to resolve challenges and execute responsibilities in both domestic and international programmes.

Since 2014, David has been a Senior Security Specialist at Gregg Protection Services, Inc. His duties have been to provide subject matter expertise in support of nonproliferation, nuclear security and human resource development projects; coordinate and leverage program and project activities to the mutual benefit of stakeholders; conduct training courses in a variety of technical subjects such as systematic approach to training (SAT), human resource development, human reliability programs, physical protection, insider threat and emergency and response planning/management.

He currently is a key subcontractor to URS Federal Services International as the Training Manager of their Kazakhstan Nuclear Security Engagement (KNSE) project for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). As the Training Manager, he has developed and conducted more than 60 nuclear security training courses for KZ nuclear sites and key governmental agencies.

Using his extensive international network of contacts, David also introduced Kazakhstan personnel to international practices and facilities by conducting several training courses in other countries with more sophisticated training venues providing an opportunity for Kazakhstan leadership and experts to benchmark the various centers for practices that may be applied in their own organisations.
