Mr. Glantz manages projects and conducts research in consequence assessment modeling, emergency response and preparedness, critical infrastructure protection, and cyber security. He is the Chair of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Subcommittee on Consequence Assessment and Protective Actions (SCAPA). He is also a member of the DOE Meteorological Coordinating Council, the ANSI/ANS Standards Working Group that is developing new standards for meteorological monitoring and atmosphere dispersion modeling, and the National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center (NARAC) DOE User's Advisory Group. Mr. Glantz is PNNL's Business Sector Coordinator for Cyber Security Programs with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Mr. Glantz's recent work includes:
- Enhancing the APGEMS atmospheric dispersion and dose assessment modeling system. APGEMS is the primary emergency response model used at the DOE's Hanford Site.
- Developing a consequence assessment modeling toolbox and software quality assurance guidance for DOE emergency response models
- Developing emergency preparedness and response exercises and training programs at the Hanford Site
- Leading the multidisciplinary team that is providing cyber security technical and policy guidance to the NRC. An upcoming focus is to provide technical support for cyber security inspections at nuclear power plants and train NRC staff and contractors to develop and implement a long-term inspection program
- Leading the multidisciplinary team that is developing security metrics for process control systems used in the oil and gas industry
- Providing guidance to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) on risk assessment models for cyber security.
