Mr. John Birir, a staff at the Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology, participated in an IAEA regional training course on 'Addressing Insider Threats for Radioactive Material and Associated Facilities' held between 30th July and 3 August 2018 in Nairobi. 

The training, which was being conducted by experts from USA, DENMARK and the IAEA, brought together participants from Mozambique, Ghana, Angola, Kenya, Uganda, Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria, Zambia, and Libya. 

This awareness course covered materials and objectives specifically from Nuclear Security Series 8 and 11 Implementing Guides “Preventive and Protective Measures against Insider Threats” and “Security of Radioactive Sources” respectively.  This course familiarized participants with those nuclear security measures that address insider threats, including unauthorized removal of radioactive materials (theft), and sabotage at facilities containing radioactive material. Consisting of lectures and small-group working sessions with exercises, the course introduced the concepts that underlie the evaluation of preventive and protective measures and explain how these should be applied to enhance nuclear security with regard to insider threats. During the small group sessions, the participants applied concepts covered in the lectures as they worked through practical exercise based on a small hypothetical facility for the maintenance, repair, testing and calibration of contamination and radiation monitoring instruments
