The centre for Science and Security Studies (CSSS) from King’s College, London (KCL), and NUVIA India held an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) endorsed workshop on Fundamentals of Radiological Source Security for individuals accountable for radiological source security.
The KCL-NUVIA India workshop was attended by 15 senior officials from private companies and governmental departments operating in the medical, oil & gas, chemicals, food processing, defence R&D and emergency response sectors. All the participants had some level of accountability for radiological source security at their organisation. The workshop was intended to introduce participants to threats posed by non-state actors and how security measures can be used to mitigate them. Drawing heavily on examples of international and UK best practices, the workshop included lectures and seminar format, group activities, real-life case studies and a detailed table-top exercise built around a hypothetical medical facility.
