PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, Aug. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT:

The release of the NTI Nuclear Security Index, a biennial assessment of nuclear security conditions worldwide.




Now in its fourth edition, the 2018 NTI Index ranks nuclear security conditions in countries with some of the world's deadliest materials—highly enriched uranium and plutonium—and the security of nuclear facilities, which if sabotaged through cyber-attacks or other means, could release dangerous radiation.




Developed with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the NTI Index is recognized worldwide as the premiere resource and tool for tracking progress on nuclear security, identifying nuclear security priorities, and encouraging governments to take steps to secure nuclear materials and to build confidence in their security.
