Workshop on autonomous and remotely operated systems: Benefits and challenges to nuclear security


The course delivered an online interactive training programme over five days for Amity students, alumni and members of India’s existing technical nuclear industry to achieve the following objectives:

  • Provide participants with an understanding of the interface between cybersecurity and physical protection and insider threats
  • Provide participants with an understanding of real threats from cyberattacks through case studies presented by nuclear security experts and stage an exercise to aid the application of the learning
  • Review and evaluate the learning to consider what continued professional development is required for participants to further enhance their understanding of nuclear security
  • Help to develop a cohort of professionals with the knowledge, skills and competence to improve the integration and effectiveness of nuclear safety and security across India

Participants learned through online interactive sessions and exercises to consider how threats can be identified and mitigated. Participants considered the topics of cybersecurity and how it connects to physical protection systems and insider threats through the human factor. The training course reviewed corrective actions and improvements that can make a real difference for mitigation of nuclear security risks.

Participants were encouraged to apply for a funded scholarship to complete a WINS Academy Certification Programme and take the required exams to achieve the status of Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) and join the WINS Alumni Network.


The course was attended by 59 participants, including students from Indian universities, members of the technical nuclear workforce, and international and Indian subject matter experts.

The course was delivered in collaboration between Amity, WINS and supporting international experts.
