3.8 Countering Violent Extremism and Insider Threats in the Nuclear Sector

WINS 30 Jan 2020

This WINS International Best Practice Guide presents various mitigation strategies for countering violent extremism (VE) and insider threat in the nuclear sector.

The guide provides an overview of the process of radicalisation as well as what motivates individuals to become an insider. It also provides a framework for mitigating insider threat that includes nuclear security culture, human resources management and a human reliability programme.

In addition, the guide discusses pre-employment procedures (e.g. applicant vetting); during-employment procedures (e.g. the employee assistance programme, the behaviour observation programme, red flag behaviours, a programme for sharing concerns); and post-employment procedures and provides suggestions for how to measure performance.

Furthermore, the guide explains how to create threat scenarios for insiders who are violent extremists and the benefits in doing so.
