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


Curious about how you can mitigate threats?

Want to know more about the latest thinking on threats?

If so, then you can watch a recording of this webinar series below.

When it comes to nuclear facilities, there is a constant need to consider the evolving threat situation and to have people, systems and processes in place that constantly evaluate threats. This includes where threats may come from, what the threats may be, and how threats can be mitigated to reduce the risk and probability of an incident occurring that has the potential to impact the security of nuclear or other radioactive material. 


The aim of this webinar series was to learn what is being done to counteract threats from experts working in the nuclear security field. This series also aimed to shed light on new ideas and ways of thinking that should be considered to minimise the risk and mitigate threats.


The priority audience for this series was WINS Academy Alumni. Current WINS Academy learners and WINS members with an interest in finding out more about threats were equally welcome to register for the webinars.

WINS promotes and actively encourages gender parity and diversity. The event included female and male subject matter experts, and WINS invited participation from a broad and diverse audience with a passion for enhancing nuclear security.
