Rank

Summary

Australia ranks 2nd in the sabotage ranking. Australia could improve its nuclear security conditions by strengthening laws and regulations to require updating of its Design Basis Threat and to mitigate the insider threat. Steps include requiring more stringent and frequent personnel vetting and requiring personnel to report suspicious behavior. Australia’s nuclear security conditions are adversely affected by the presence of groups interested in committing acts of nuclear terrorism on its territory.
