This episode addresses the complex question of what is nuclear security and how it differs from nuclear safety including the difference in their accompanying cultures. The role of the design-basis threat assessment in nuclear security planning is also discussed. This is the third of a four-part series on the fundamentals of nuclear safety, security and safeguards and their inter-relationships.
