Sharing our security expertise overseas

NTS’s expertise in security and resilience helps maturing and developing nations strengthen their own nuclear security and resilience capabilities.  

NTS is a partner in the delivery of the UK’s Nuclear Security Culture Programme (NSCP). The programme is led by Kings College London and managed by the UK’s Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy. It forms a key part of the UK Government’s Global Nuclear Security Programme.  

The programme seeks to strengthen nuclear security policies and practice around the world to mitigate threats to sensitive materials, information and systems. It focuses on exploring the concept of nuclear security culture and how this can be assessed and strengthened in various types of nuclear organisations and across different national contexts.  

A range of activities are conducted under the programme, both within the UK and abroad in partnership with local stakeholders. Over the past five years more than thirty activities have been run under the NSCP in nine different countries.
