The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Partners with Kazakhstan
on Vulnerability Assessment Nuclear Security Training Course
November 17, 2022

As part of the United States’ efforts to support Kazakhstan’s nuclear facility security across the country, DTRA conducted a training course from November 7-11, 2022 on vulnerability assessment fundamentals with Kazakhstani nuclear security experts .

Experienced U.S. instructors led participants through a series of lectures and practical exercises to improve vulnerability assessment methodologies and techniques. The course included site visits to commercial businesses in Almaty seeking to improve physical security, which provided hands-on avenues for participants to apply their skills in controlled environments while also benefitting local entities. Like with all DTRA nuclear security courses, Kazakhstani stakeholders will modify this training course for future use us and incorporation into a growing nuclear security training curriculum.
