The nuclear industry has been engaged in providing protection against an insider threat since its inception.
Insider protection activities have been fairly successful in the past; however, present societal conditions require increased protection to further minimize the existence of an insider or insider perpetrated incident. Integration of insider protection techniques into existing administrative and operational procedures has had economic and operational impact.
