Managing Cyber Risks
The purpose of this training is to guide bilateral partners in managing cyber security risks related to nuclear facilities.

Cybersecurity Fundamentals
The training identifies typical cyber touchpoints in nonproliferation technological solutions and discusses consequences of a cyber threat.

IAEA Computer Security for Nuclear Facilities International Training Course
The purpose of this 2 week  training is to educate participants regarding computer security related issues within nuclear security of nuclear facilities. To familiarize participants with key technologies found in a nuclear facility, identify skills needed to assess cyber risk and vulnerabilities. Participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the digital footprint typical of nuclear facilities, their vulnerabilities, how to assess those vulnerabilities, and typical controls used for mitigations.

Cyber Fallout
Participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the digital footprint typical of nuclear facilities, their vulnerabilities, how to assess those vulnerabilities, and typical controls used for mitigations.

Advanced Insider Threat Mitigatione
The purpose of this course is to highlight approaches and techniques that mitigate risks posed by insider threats.

Advanced Radiation Detection Training – Civil Support Team (ARDT-CST)
ARDT is a four-day course delivered seven times per year for the National Guard Bureau’s Civil Support Team program. This training is required for all down range entry team members from each of the 57 CST teams. The Advanced Instruction is for team members who have completed basic rad response courses such as ARRT II. Curriculum covers basic concepts review, responder math, PRND search and sweep tactics, DOE triage, react to post RDD detonation, RDD review, equipment, and gamma spectrum field collection.

Day one is class room with rotating workshops, day two is lanes training with sources, day three is a capstone response to RDD detonation exercise, and day four is a capstone PRND sweep/search/locate exercise.

CST Team Training
Team specific training customized to Commander’s objectives. Four-day course which expands on the ARDT course by training the entire team to conduct PRND and Response to RDD missions. Emphasis is on command and control via MFK, decontamination, predictive modeling via HPAC, data packaging for DOE RAP/DHS via DOE Triage and RadResponder, and basic ARDT for non-survey team members.

CST Exercise
The 57 CST Commanders are required to exercise 12 per year with local and federal responders. The exercise template developed by INL will build off of the ARDT and CST Team Training efforts. Templates can be used at RRTR or used at the CST’s home state. INL can provide sources, SMEs and RadCon support.
