International experts gather in Virginia to discuss nuclear, radiological, and cyber security at NTI’s Global Dialogue

This week NTI is bringing international government officials, experts, and industry participants together to discuss nuclear, radiological, and cyber security priorities at the seventh Global Dialogue on Nuclear Security Priorities. This project is an international, cross-sector dialogue among leading government officials, experts, nuclear security practitioners, and other stakeholders. It was launched initially to help shape the Nuclear Security Summit process and strengthen global nuclear materials security. Since the conclusion of the Nuclear Security Summit process in early 2016, the Global Dialogue has made recommendations for sustaining high-level political attention and momentum on nuclear security.

This week’s event commences the third series of the Global Dialogue meetings, focused on bringing in more participants from industry to interact with experts and state-level officials for cross-sector dialogue. The two and half day event will build off of the work done by previous Global Dialogues on nuclear materials security, but it will also focus on radiological materials and cyber security. Overall, the aims of the Global Dialogue are to:

  • Build upon consensus reached through the Global Dialogue process to address remaining and new challenges to the global nuclear security system;
  • Explore practical proposals for addressing cyber security at nuclear facilities and the security of radiological materials;
  • Provide updates on progress to strengthen the system since the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit, including the five Action Plans and Contact Group;
  • Further advance the discussion on options for strengthening the Convention on Physical Protection (CPP) regime; and
  • Continue to provide a forum for an integrated and creative dialogue among government officials, experts, nuclear industry and stakeholders.

The following are a sample of briefing papers being presented at this event:
