Advancing Nuclear Security

Insiders pose a significant threat to nuclear and radiological security, as they generally possess access rights which, together with their authority and knowledge, grant them far greater opportunity than outsiders to bypass dedicated nuclear and radiological security elements.

Mitigating Insider Threats

Following the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit, the U.S. sponsored a Joint Statement on Insider Threat Mitigation, which is now known as IAEA Information Circular 908 (INFCIRC/908). Since then, dozens of countries have endorsed the Joint Statement and are advancing the state-of-practice of mitigating insider threats for nuclear security.
