Helping licensees assess the maturity of their security programme and measure their security culture effectiveness.
Radioactive materials play an important role in medical, research and commercial facilities. Many of these facilities are open to the public and cannot be locked down like other facilities that use similar materials. These public facilities implement security systems to protect the radioactive materials; however, a facility’s security culture can make or break the security system.
Security culture is a term used to describe the beliefs and behaviours people exhibit in relation to security. It is one of the most challenging aspects—and underlying vulnerabilities—in the practical implementation of security. This workshop will discuss the role of security culture in a facility’s security system and why a strong security culture is so important for protecting radioactive materials. The workshop will also explore how disposing of radioactive materials or using alternative non-radioisotopic technologies will impact a facility’s security culture.
The discussions will be supported by the following publications:
Participation will be limited, so please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to attend this event. Attendees will be expected to meet their own costs for travel and accommodation, but all the workshop related costs will be met by the organisers. No registration fee is required.
In line with WINS’ innovative approach to Best Practice Workshops, this event will be interactive and professionally facilitated. The workshop will be built around a number of presentations, group discussions and case studies to further explore the topic.
An Instant Electronic Voting system will be used to allow participants to anonymously vote using keypads, providing their views on questions put to the workshop. Discussions will be subject to “Chatham House” rules (what was said can be reported but not attributed).
