Helping licensees assess the maturity of their security programme and measure their security culture effectiveness.
In 2015, we envisioned 10 external strategic objectives to be achieved by 2020. These objectives cannot be achieved by WINS alone, but only in collaboration with many other key stakeholders. We invite you to commit to these goals in your own way and area of expertise; together we can turn this vision into reality.
To learn more about each objective, scroll through the following section.
Demonstrable competence increasingly becomes a licensing requirement for personnel with accountabilities for nuclear security, including the regulatory requirement for professional certification of key nuclear security management positions.
The IAEA’s nuclear security programme promotes structured professional development and voluntary certification, and the IAEA has entered into joint nuclear security certification programmes with training institutes, including WINS.
An increasing number of organisations, including regulators, operators, police and responsible government departments, publish meaningful governance reports about the corporate oversight of their security programmes.
An effective and sustainable international industry forum is operating to implement the recommendations and commitments made during the Nuclear Industry Summits.
A sustainable peer review programme for nuclear security management practices implemented under the responsibilities of nuclear operating organisations has been established in some countries and benchmarking studies with organisations of other sensitive industries are regularly conducted.
Nuclear security is increasingly seen as a strategic issue for nuclear-related organisations (as is nuclear safety) rather than as a regulatory burden.
Security programmes are subject to the business disciplines of effectiveness (performance tested), and efficiency and security regulations are performance-based.
Nuclear safety and security continue to coalesce, and more of the nuclear safety-related disciplines and management attitudes are used to enhance nuclear security with a focus on governance arrangements and human reliability.
Cybersecurity and physical protection arrangements are properly integrated as part of an all-risks approach to the security programme.
High quality professional development programmes that incorporate ISO Standards guidance and focus on promoting an inclusive and diverse nuclear security profession are the norm in the sector.
Numerous governmental and nongovernmental organisations provide us with funding. We gratefully acknowledge their belief in our mission and the support that they have given us over the years.
Our members consist of both individuals and organisations. Their willingness to contribute their time and expertise to developing and sharing best practices with the wider nuclear security community is fundamental to our work.
We are committed to providing the highest quality services to our members and to careful stewardship of our funding. We also believe that excellence and quality should be determined by external measurements, not simply by self-assessment.
This is why we proactively seek audits from external organisations on the quality of our services and financial management. It is also why we value feedback from our members and other stakeholders so highly.
Our annual report presents in-depth information about our membership, services, stakeholders, achievements, financial performance, quality management and strategy.
